YEP helps preparing expatriates and their families for their assignment abroad. YEP guides expatriates and their families through the practical and emotional process of moving to this new country. We prepare and support the moving families by providing customized and individualized information and coaching related to living, learning and working in the Atlanta area.
Introducing Your Expat Partner
Moving abroad comes with many questions and bureaucratic challenges, such as finding the right place to live, finding good schools, getting to know your way around, deciding about working or not working and “basic” things such as organizing your social security number and driver’s license.
We help answer these questions, we address concerns and are a local source of information. We provide emotional support and personal and independent guidance during the process of transition.
What clients say...
“The main advantages for us being supported by YEP was that we had someone to talk to about all our questions and concerns outside our own company. We knew exactly what to do to get us through all the bureaucracy that needs to be taken care of when moving to the US. We also were introduced to a great social network that supported us in feeling at home right away.”

YEP Empowers expatriate partners
We empower expatriate partners in the Atlanta area to carve their own professional path.We offer career support for the partner of the expatriate. Expatriate partners include highly educated and experienced professionals.

interviews and adjusting to working in a US
office. We connect expatriate partners with organizations that gain from the international experiences these professional expat partners bring to Atlanta. We connect expatriate partners interested in work and/or developmental activities with each other.
- “75% of expatriate partners who do not work in the host country would like to do so”
- “Employment has a positive impact on the adjustment and health and well being of the expatriate family as well as on family relationships.”
- "80% of expatriate partners would welcome information and support services to help them find employment or other developmental activities in the host country.”

Tipping can be very confusing for expats. How confused can you get! Let's try to tell you a little bit more. We found a nice quote we would like to share within our network.
"There is a long tradition of tipping in the US where greasing palms is both an integral part of the American way of life and a social disease (tippititus), and has nothing to do with the quality of service. Non tippers are considered to be cheap (the ultimate insult to Americans) and are treated with contempt, particularly by taxi drivers." (quote from 'living and working in America by David Hampshire)
Restaurans, taxi's, hairdressers; the average expected tip is 15%. For waiters and waitresses, 20% might be expected depending on the class of establisment. Nice website about tippin www.tipping.org and www.tipguide.com. We hope this will help!
