Volunteer with AFS and change the world one person at a time!

AFS-USA is a volunteer driven organization with over 60 years of experience in intercultural education.  Without the more than 5,000 volunteers nationwide, we simply could not carry out our mission of working towards a more just and peaceful world by providing international and intercultural learning experiences to individuals, families, schools, and communities through a global volunteer partnership.
