NSLI-Y has provided overseas language immersion opportunities for over 6,500 U.S. teenagers. Through NSLI-Y, alumni have developed significant language abilities, cultural understanding, and cross-cultural communication skills. They have applied these skills, as well as newfound leadership and problem-solving abilities, in academic, service, and professional ways, advancing the United States’ role in international dialogue and ability to compete effectively in the global economy.
It has been both a springboard to life-changing opportunities and a backbone to life-defining choices. Because ever since [NSLI-Y], I have been building my life in experiences that give me the same sense of vibrancy and work that gives me the same sense of fulfillment.– NSLI-Y Arabic Alum
One of the most valuable skills that NSLI-Y taught me was that of communication. Overcoming the barriers and the challenges of learning a new language has allowed me to connect with others on more personal levels and has given me the confidence to express myself. – NSLI-Y Persian Alum
