AFS-USA provides opportunities for intercultural exchange that develop the global competence needed to create a more just and peaceful world. As we’ve consistently demonstrated, AFS nurtures active global citizens who make the world a better place. Research has proven that study abroad programs allow students to form the long-lasting, meaningful relationships necessary to deepen creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
With a vast global network of students, parents, families, staff members, and donors, the AFS Effect stretches across borders and divides. We interviewed some of the most impactful global citizens in our community to share what drives them to be a part of AFS.
