"Welcome to the AFS Dallas Area Team website. "
- Sheri Spangler-Miller, Volunteer Chair
Where are we Located?
We are in Texas, primarily in Dallas, Collin, and Tarrant counties. Denton county is represented by the Denton/Lewisville Chapter.
How are we Doing?
For 2014-15, we have
51 Active AFS Volunteers
39 Students hosted in the Dallas Area Team
13 U.S. students sent abroad for year, semester or summer programs
How can you get Involved?
If you are an AFS returnee, are familiar with the program through family and friends, and/or are simply interested in working with students of different cultures, then we are looking for you! There are all kinds of volunteer opportunities available from working with the students directly to taking on a more "behind the scenes" approach. We have plenty of small tasks available for the occasional volunteer and larger, more leadership-type roles for those who are interested in such opportunities. Be sure to click on "Apply Online" in the upper right corner to begin the process as a volunteer, host family, student going abroad, or donor.
