Re-entry Orientations

Returning home from an exchange program often comes with challenges, like experiencing reverse culture shock and missing one’s host community. That’s why we provide re-entry orientations that encourage and guide students to reflect on and grow from their intercultural journeys after they return home. Students have access to wellness tips, ways to connect virtually with other AFSers, and more. For more information and questions please contact [email protected].
