Western New York Area Team

Welcome to Your WNY Area Team


OK, all 35 Western New York students are placed and with their families! Thank you all for your assistance with this effort!

2 items coming up soon - the Fall Orientation / Family Picnic and the Washington D. C. trip. Details for both can be found in the Docs and Info tabs.

The Orienation/Picnic is Sunday 10/01/17 (1:00-7:00) at Elicott Creek Park (mandatory for students, stongly recommended for families).

The Washington trip is open to all Students and high-school age siblings (10/06 - 10/09/17). This one is always a great time as the kids stay with AFS families in the D.C. area in the evening, and we re-group in the mornings to explore our capitol during the day. Often several D. C. students will join us for the daytime and the connections last through the year as a few have joined us for the Disney trip in May.

If you are interested in the D.C. trip, please let Ann know as soon as possible.

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
