To create new AFS Units, we have here a list of steps that are necessary to guarantee the sustainability of this process.
Identifying Viability to create new chapters
This is the first step in the process of creating new units, you need to identify:
if the city has potential to run AFS operations, if they have potential schools; if it’s safe for the participants, ideally someone should visit the city to see viability and meet the potential volunteers;If there are a minimum number of potential volunteers to run the operations, this number can vary from Partner to Partner, but it’s important that you have more than one person interested.
it’s important not to underestimate the efforts needed to support the new units, so make sure also to define the maximum number of local units that can be supported each year.
