AFS is the place for you if you want to help connect the world to your community and make a difference in the lives of students and families through intercultural learning!- AFS Volunteer
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.

Be inspired by our Volunteer Spotlight, a monthly feature that highlights what teams and individuals are doing around the country.
