Welcome to Columbia Pacific

About Our Team

AFS Columbia Pacific is located in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington, near the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean.  We have around 140 volunteers, and we're hosting 62 exchange students during the 2014-2015 hosting year.

Our Team here in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington is passionate about the AFS mission of a more just and peaceful world through intercultural learning. Our lives have been enriched by the exchange experience, and we are happy to give back to AFS through our volunteer efforts. We would love to have you join the AFS family as an Exchange Student, a Host Family, or a Volunteer.
