  • Over 30 Exchange Students and Their Host Families

The local team covers San Francisco, the Peninsula, the Tri-Valley and the East Bay, enabling volunteers to focus their energies in their own communities if they choose while being an integral part of the larger Bay Area Team.


Extending from Napa and Sonoma counties in the north to San Jose and Los Gatos in the south, as well as San Francisco and the greater East Bay, the AFS San Francisco Bay Area team covers a wide territory.

Among the most experienced and respected intercultural exchange organizations in the world, AFS depends on a global network of committed, energized volunteers to carry out its mission of providing intercultural learning opportunities to help people develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to create a more just and peaceful world.
