The AFS community—more than 1 million alumni, volunteers, staff worldwide—knows first-hand that global citizenship education empowers people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether we have volunteered, studied abroad, hosted a student from a different country, or sent a child on an exchange program, we know the transformative, illuminating impact that education across cultures can have. It can help us learn to appreciate our differences as real strengths.
