Now more than ever, AFS commits to a vision of warmth and welcome for international students. Our One Welcoming World campaign raises awareness and funds to strengthen the role of AFS and our volunteers in encouraging peace and intercultural understanding through international exchange.

You have the power to create One Welcoming World! Please join us by:

1. Making a gift to AFS today
Your support will help AFS to provide financially needy students with opportunities for international exchange and our many dedicated volunteers with access to training and support. Explore our study abroad programs and make a donation today.

2. Hosting an international student in your home
Each year around 12,000 young people take part in AFS Programs in 60 countries worldwide.  Explore our website for more information on the life-changing experience of hosting an international student or contact the AFS office in your country to get involved.

3. Volunteering in your local community
We simply could not do our programs without the support of over 40,000 volunteers in 60 countries worldwide.  Please explore our website and contact the AFS office in your country for more information about how you can make a real and measurable difference through hosting, outreach, and training in your local community.
