AFSNext experiences are made possible through a network of like-minded organizations.
AFS-USA is a member of the Sentio network, an international, voluntary, non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides intercultural learning opportunities to help people develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to create a more just and peaceful world.
The Sentio Network was created in 2014 as a subsidiary of AFS Intercultural Programs to develop a global network of thoroughly vetted, high quality, like-minded organizations to further promote the AFS mission and provide intercultural learning opportunities for adults.
Members of the Sentio Network are uniquely aligned by a core set of values that help us to deliver programs and educational opportunities that adhere to a strict code of program and organizational quality.
