We need you!

Be a host family: More than providing a bed and meals, AFS host families welcome a new member into their home, share their everyday lives, and grow as they get to know one another.

Be a liaison: Liaisons are volunteers identified as the primary contact for each host family and individual AFS participant for the duration of his or her program.

Be an AFS student: Spend a year studying abroad in one of more than 50 AFS countries.
