Team Overview

The AFS Las Vegas Area Team is proud to participate in both sending and hosting exchange students in our community.

Yes, Las Vegas is a tourist destination, but it is also a nurturing and resourceful community where families prosper and ideas flourish.

We are excited about your interest in our program and encourage you to take the next step towards international exchange.
We hope you will consider hosting a student, sending a student abroad, or volunteering with the local chapter.
