AFS-USA News

We want your AFS Hosting story!

Want to share your unforgettable hosting experience? We want to hear from you, whether you hosted this year or 10 years ago!

AFS-USA is looking for fresh stories and faces for its hosting scrapbook. New host families always want to hear what hosting an international exchange student is all about. Now is your chance to share your world. All you have to do is:

  1. Write a 250-500 word story that captures your hosting experience.
  2. Find a high-resolution (at least 300 dpi) photo or two in the largest file size you have available. Don't forget to include captions with your submission so we know who is in the photo, when and where it was taken, and what you were up to!
  3. Email your story and photos to marketing@afs.org with the subject: "Hosting Scrapbook Submission."

Need inspiration? Check out stories from previous host families here.

The deadline to submit is December 21st.

By submitting your story, you are granting AFS the right to use, publish and/or reproduce excerpts for promotional materials.
