Team Overview

Welcome to Your Area Team

DeRuyter AFS has been facilitating AFS programs in the Central New York area for more than 30 years. Formerly the North Central Tier NY Area Team, we are committed to providing the best possible support to AFS families and the students they host.  We would love to welcome you to our AFS family!
– Maryanne Marr, Volunteer Coordinator

Where are we Located?

DeRuyter AFS covers a large geographical area of Central NY- north to the Canadian border, south to the Cortland/Ithaca area, east to Utica and west to Skaneateles.

How are we Doing?

DeRuyter AFS is in the process of rebuilding the former NCT  NY Area Team.  We are a small group at this time, but hoping to include more volunteers who share our excitement about AFS Programs.

  • 9 – Active AFS Volunteers

  • 6 – Students hosted in the DeRuyter Chapter

Our AFS Team’s website is currently being developed. In the meantime, review the resources below to get involved locally. Contact AFS if you have any questions.
