As a leader in intercultural education, AFS is dedicated to engaging educators, students, families and communities in learning about global competency. Global competence is cultivated both inside and outside the classroom. Our educational resources for use in the classroom and our opportunities abroad are aligned to the US Department of Education’s international strategy, and are designed to achieve four educational goals:
Free intercultural education lesson plans and digital resources for teaching Global Competency in your classroom.
Opportunities for Diverse Students
View scholarships to help all of your students have an intercultural experience.
Global Competence Readiness Index
A new self-assessment tool to help educators determine how prepared their schools are to foster global competence among students.
AFS-USA supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals by facilitating programs and providing resources to amplify and encourage action towards the UN’s vision for a more sustainable and peaceful world.
