What do Global Families do?
AFS has invited families to welcome international students in their homes since 1947. Being a Global Family means you’re welcoming a student from another part of the world:Germany, Thailand, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Norway, from wherever you can imagine! And by doing that you will be adding someone new to your family, as close as a son or daughter of your own! You don’t need to send your own children on an AFS exchange at the same time. The only thing you need is to be sure you can provide Love, Food and a Home. We have different types of programs, so you can choose how much time you can be a host family. Be part of the life-changing experience of hosting a student and share a bond that will last forever.
