Getting Involved with AFS

Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, whether you want to go abroad or stay home, AFS offers many opportunities to help foster worldwide understanding built on international friendships.

High School
Students stay with a host family in another country and go to school for a year or a semester. Short term programs are also available in some countries.

Community Service
Young adults – 18 and older – work as a volunteer in a community service organization or business abroad while learning skills, a new language and culture. Most programs are for a semester (4-6 months). Some AFS Partner countries also offer programs for teachers.

Host a student or young adult for a year, a semester, or a few months. As a host family, you will bring into your family an international son or daughter, sister or brother or adult friend.
