FLEX Alumni Welcome New Alumni with Creative Video

Alumni of the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program are known for their creativity, warmth, and enthusiasm. These qualities are exhibited no better than in a recent video created by the network of former American Serbia and Montenegro Youth Leadership Exchange (A-SMYLE) and FLEX alumni welcoming the next generation returning from their programs in the United States this summer. 
The A-SMYLE Program has allowed 560 Serbian and Montenegrin high school students to spend a year in the United States, living with a host family and attending a U.S. high school. In the 2016-2017 academic year, A-SMYLE alumni will join the nearly 24,000 alumni of the FLEX program.  
In what has become a tradition, A-SMYLE and FLEX alumni from Serbia and Montenegro gather for Global Youth Service Day. In addition to participating in community service, the alumni produce a creative welcome video for the next generation of FLEX alumni. This year’s video features music by Major Lazer & DJ Snake. The returning fifty A-SMYLE/ FLEX participants certainly know they have a fantastic network of alumni to "lean on" when they return to their communities in Serbia and Montenegro!
