The America - Israel Friendship League bridging distances to reveal the beauty, the humanity, and the modern democratic values that define both nations.
The AIFL experience fosters personal connections for which no words or political actions alone can substitute. United, our American and Israeli constituencies realize the extent of our nations' shared values and goals-a strong foundation for any friendship.
Founded in 1977, YASE remains the only formal secondary school exchange between the United States and Israel.
Our "Youth Ambassadors" partake in a month-long adventure that is both exciting and rigorous. Immersed in a world both new and familiar they discover the wonders of unexplored cultures, and, unlike many nations separated across vast distances when American and Israeli youth visit each other's homes curiosity, and the thrill of exploration find free-reign in the comfort of shared values.
