Greater Puget Sound


We are proud to be one of the largest Area Teams in the AFS-USA network.  It is thanks to the dedication of our hard working and engaged volunteer force, strong relationships with local public and private schools and our wonderful students that allow AFS Greater Puget Sound (AFS-GPS) to flourish.

Where are we located?

AFS-GPS represents a region extending from the islands of San Juan County, to the Pacific coast, east to the Cascade Mountains. Out team covers the major urban centers of Seattle, Tacoma and Bellevue as well as other prominent cities such as Bellingham, Olympia and Everett.


We are a very engaged team comprised of:

  • 100+ Active Volunteers

  • 90+ Students sent/hosted each year

  • 45+ Schools that send/host our students

Our 2011-2012 hosted students of the Greater Puget Sound
