As a leader in intercultural education, AFS is dedicated to teaching global competency both inside and outside of the classroom. Our educational resources and opportunities abroad are aligned to the US Department of Education’s international strategy, and are designed to achieve four educational goals:
Students are able to transform challenging experiences into valuable personal growth opportunities.
Students have both the motivation and communication skills to be successful in diverse environments.
Students can reassess their own cultural values and open their minds to inspire personal skills-building.
Students will empathize with people from different backgrounds and thrive in collaborative cross-cultural experiences.
