You Decide


“One of the aims of higher education is to broaden perspectives, and what better way than by a home stay in a really different country, like Bangladesh or Senegal? Time abroad also leaves one more aware of the complex prism of suspicion through which the United States is often viewed. If more Americans had overseas experience, our foreign policy might be wiser.”

Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times

Whether for a class group, a scout troop, a church/temple group, or a group of retirees, AFS organizes
customized educational experiences that are affordable and relevant to your learning objectives.

Frequently Asked Questions


No award can replace the value and pride I feel at knowing that I helped my students develop a love of Spanish and a true passion for engaging in the world as a global citizen.

- Jill, Spanish & World Language Instructor

For more than 65 years, people from every corner of the globe have benefited
from the AFS exchange of people and ideas. We are best known for our
academic year high school exchanges. But, AFS also believes that
the promotion of our mission and our goals for global competency and
intercultural collaboration should not be limited to those able to leave
home for an entire summer or year.
