Greater Los Angeles Area Team

Welcome to AFS in Greater Los Angeles

"Realizing Dreams...
Dreams of living in another country.
Dreams of learning a new language.

Dreams of making new friends."

Each year, many American families in our area host a high school age student from another country. Additionally, each year many students from the Greater Los Angeles area study abroad on an AFS exchange program.

Along with tens of thousands of volunteers worldwide, AFS is the leading international exchange program in the world!

During that time, the students, their host families and friends are forever changed by their homestay in our area. AFS changes the lives of many people each year. Be one of those people that make a difference.
