Host Family Resources

We greatly value our AFS host families and want to provide you with the best possible support.  This also includes making information easily accessible to you.  You can find commonly needed information in the links provided below.  They will take you to the appropriate AFS wiki page where you can read more information and/or download the manuals or forms desired.  And of course, you are encouraged to contact your liaison or any of our knowledgeable AFS volunteers for any further assistance.

Host Family Resources:


Some of our AFS students are on a US Dept of State scholarship to be here.  AFS has been working with the DoS to write country specific handbooks for host families hosting participants from these countries.  This is an ongoing project while funds are available.  Not all of the countries participating in these scholarship programs have handbooks yet.  Click the link below to veiw the ones that are currently available.
