Team Overview

Welcome to the AFS California Central Coast Team Website!

Welcome to the California Central Coast Area Team! Our Area Team stretches from Ventura County through San Luis Obispo County and we include metropolitan areas and rural communities, but we are never too far from the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

AFS has a long history in some of our communities and in others we are newly building an AFS network of families and volunteers. Some of our volunteers have long experience and some are new to global exchange. However, we share a passion for learning about new cultures, involving families in the unique experience of hosting, and supporting kids who are taking on the challenge of a lifetime by becoming AFS exchange students.

We invite you to get involved with our Area Team and embrace the diversity and wonder of our world. Through our volunteer work with AFS, we strive to make a difference, one kid and family at a time…
