This is an extraordinary time – while we may feel isolated, technology offers us the ability to connect virtually. Through AFS virtual programs and online resources you can explore the countries, territories, and cultures in which AFS brings people together, create global connections, and empower your next adventures.

At AFS we believe travel does more than show us incredible places. It brings people together to create a more just and peaceful world. By embarking on an online AFS program, you’ll make friends from around the world, be a part of a multicultural classroom, get discounts on future travel, and have a certificate which will stand out on your resume.

Global You Adventurer Program

The AFS Global You Adventurer program is a 100% online global experience designed for young people around the world. Facilitated and offered by our parent network that connects over 60 countries around the world, AFS International, this course has been designed in consultation with Ivy League institution University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) to ensure an impactful learning experience.

This blended learning course is designed to equip 14 to 17 year olds with social tools to champion:

  • Agency: how to stand for important issues and help make the world a better place
  • Intercultural understanding: how to be part of a global community
  • Diversity: what makes differences between cultures important and beautiful
  • Interpersonal communication: why we all need to build our empathy muscles
  • Equality & advocacy: what to do about the inequalities you encounter around you
  • The award-winning AFS Global Competence Certificate, which prepares you for future education opportunities and opens up new career pathways
  • Lifelong membership in the AFS global alumni network
  • Discounts on future study abroad programs with AFS, including the upcoming AFS-USA Virtual Exchange program!

In the works: AFS-USA Virtual Exchange Sustainability World Tour!

Summer travel is cancelled, but international exchange is not. This Virtual Exchange program will bring together high school students from many countries and cultures online to learn, discuss, and co-create ways we can take climate action to move toward a more sustainable future for our world.
