Western New York Area Team

Welcome to Your WNY Area Team


First arrival students are here and gtting settled into their new adventure. Thanks to all families for hosting and making them feel at home.

A second Host Family Orientation is set for Thursday, 08/31/17. For any families that missed the first one, please try to make this one.

We still have a few students that need families and the deadline (08/31/17) is fast approaching. Please keep chatting it up and let Jenna or Inge know if you have any leads.

For anyone that is interseted in hosting OR studying abroad, they should contact our Team Development Specialist, Jenna Powell jpowell@afsusa.org or (585) 410-2017.

On a continuing reminder - families, students, and volunteers, please check your e-mails for AFS updates.

Make sure that e-mails from AFS or the local volunteers do not get lost in a "spam", "junk", or "clutter" folder (if your e-mail has a spam folder, check it occasionally).

As always, thank you for your support.

Lastly, if you have any suggestions or comments on the web site's content, let me know.

Best regards - Steve
