The World Needs More Global Citizens

AFS-USA delivers immersive, global learning opportunities that help students develop the skills and desire to build a more just and peaceful world. Our ability to offer these life-changing programs relies on the voluntary support of individuals and host families across the country, as well as the generous contributions of donors.

Your gift to AFS-USA supports the organization’s vital operations; each year, we send 1,000 U.S. students abroad, welcome 2,300 international high school students into the U.S., and maintain a network of more than 4,000 AFS-USA Volunteers who are making a difference in communities nationwide.
