Western New York Area Team

Welcome to Your WNY Area Team


Greetings everyone!

The 2019-2020 Hosting year is here! Many students are in Western New York and getting acclimated to the new world they will live in for the next 10 months.

We will be getting more students in our second arrivals. but we still need to find families for several more students. Please reach out to anyone that may have any interest in hosting a student. This is a great experience, and we want to nake sure that all the kids get placed as soon as possible.

We will be having a 3rd Host Family Orientation for secand arrival studeants as well as for those families that are just signing up now. Details will be e-mailed and it will be noted on the Calendar and Map.

I also (finally) got the 2018-2019 WNY video dropped into YouTube. Link is in he Docs, Info, and Video tab. In addition, you will find a link to many of our group activity pictures there.

On a continuing reminder - families, students, and volunteers, please check your e-mails for AFS updates.

Make sure that e-mails from AFS or the local volunteers do not get lost in a "spam", "junk", or "clutter" folder (if your e-mail has a spam folder, check it occasionally).

As always, thank you for your support.

Lastly, if you have any suggestions or comments on the web site's content, let me know.
