Help promote international education and global awareness by building connections with local schools, organizations, and businesses. AFS-USA partners with 1,100+ schools throughout the country that are committed to global learning. Many of these schools welcome exchange students into their communities as well as encourage local students to study abroad.

Through this role, you’ll encourage educators and community-based organizations to open their doors to international exchange. This is an opportunity to introduce AFS year, semester, summer, and gap year programs to American students. You’ll also promote signature AFS diversity programs and help fundraise for merit and need-based scholarships for local students.

This is your chance to bring the world a little closer to home by helping people in your community become citizens of the world!
