Meet SYA Students
SYA students come from all walks of life and from every corner of the country. Since SYA's founding in 1964, over 8,000 students from over 1,000 high schools have embarked on the adventure of SYA. While there is no "typical" SYA student, what all SYAers have in common is an insatiable curiosity and a willingness to venture out of their comfort zone. Meet a few recent SYA students below and learn more about who they are and how their experiences in China, France, Italy, or Spain impacted their lives.
