Your gift to AFS-USA's annual fund will help change lives.

When you support AFS-USA, you aren't just giving students the opportunity to study abroad. You are changing lives and making the world a better place by increasing intercultural understanding, broadening people's perspectives, bringing the world together, and empowering today's U.S. youth to become tomorrow's leaders. YOU can make change possible when you provide global education opportunities to thousands of individuals, families, schools, and communities.


Watch the video below to see the ways in which AFS-USA has transformed the lives of American students from all across the U.S.


Between now and December 31st, your gift will make twice the impact! AFS-USA's Board of Directors will match $100,000 in donations to the Make Change Possible campaign and would like to challenge you to match their contribution.
