As a member of your community, I value sharing opportunities that positively affect the world. I volunteer with AFS-USA, a trusted leader in intercultural high school student exchange for more than 65 years. AFS organizes and supports intercultural learning experiences for thousands of students and their families in more than 90 countries, and has transformed the lives of millions of students, families and volunteers like me.
We invite families to join our global community by hosting an AFS Exchange Student for the 2014-2015 school year. Hosting an international student means more than providing a bed and meals. As an AFS Host Family, you'll transform your own community while learning about a new culture. You'll also help a young person discover the US right from your home. Any kind of family can host, and you'll have volunteers like me to support you throughout your experience. So, find a host son or daughter with AFS and join the AFS Network of more than 424,000 families and students worldwide.
Take the next step by contacting me directly, or getting started on our website afsusa.org. You can also call 1-800-AFS-INFO, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit us on Facebook to get a better sense of what our community is like.
I hope you will be inspired to share your life with an AFS Exchange Student in 2014.
