Team Overview

Welcome to the AFS Greater Cincinnati Team

Welcome to the AFS Greater Cincinnati Area Team website. Our mission is to make the world a smaller place through cultural exchange. AFS international exchange student programs not only foster life-long bonds and appreciation for cultural diversity, but also provide life-changing experiences for students, host families, and volunteers. Please consider joining us by volunteering, hosting,  or going abroad on one of our wonderful programs.

-Liz Burger, Chair, Greater Cincinnati AFS

Our team is responsible for Southwestern Ohio,  as well as parts of Kentucky and Indiana. We have an active chapter Oxford, Ohio as well.  Our volunteers meet monthly to plan events and provide support to students being hosted in our area, as well as students going abroad with AFS.
