Western New York Area Team

Welcome to Your WNY Area Team


Next item on the caledar is New York City (04/26 - 04/29/18)! We are getting the details finalized for pickup-times and locations, so stay tuned. This year we are going to the Freedom Tower observation deck for the first time (along with all the other usual "touristy" things we do). Looking forward to a great time!

May starts off with the mandatory Pre-Departure Orientation / Talent Show (05/05 - 05/06/18) and then the Disney trip (05/17 - 02/22/18)

One of the last items we have for the year is White Water Rafting day trip to Letchworth State Park on Sunday, June 10th. We usually have a good turnout with our friends from the Finger Lakes Team and have had more than 20 four person rafts glide down the Genessee River. That is followed by a cook-out that is provided.

For anyone that is interseted in hosting OR studying abroad, they should contact our Team Development Specialist, Jenna Powell jpowell@afsusa.org or (585) 410-2017.

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.
