Team Overview

Where are we Located?

We serve the Southern California area bounded by Los Angeles on the North, San Diego on the South, Riverside County on the East, and the Pacific Ocean on the West.  We are privileged to have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and some of the best weather.

AFS has an extensive history in some of our communities and in others we are newly building an AFS network of families and volunteers. Some of our volunteers have long experience and some are new to global exchange. However, we all share a passion for learning about new cultures, involving families in the unique experience of hosting, and supporting students who are interested in becoming AFS Exchange Students.

We invite you to get involved with our Area Team and embrace the diversity and wonder of our world. Through our volunteer work with AFS, we strive to make a difference, one student and family at a time…

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.
