AFS international programs are supported by facilitated intercultural and global competency curriculums.
Intercultural experiences; innovative learning journeys
AFS volunteers are trained to guide unique intercultural learning journeys for students, families and other volunteers.
AFS transformed hosting into a creative intercultural learning program, complete with objectives and activities.
AFS helps schools create dynamic intercultural workshops, class exchanges and events to enrich the entire school community.
AFS in Schools
Schools play an important role in the AFS student exchange experience. They send and host AFS students, and work with AFS to create school-based intercultural learning programs. AFS also collaborates with educators and education ministries to develop local, regional and national intercultural learning and global citizenship education policies and initiatives.
