HOST, STUDY ABROAD, VOLUNTEER AND/OR DONATE WITH AFS
Currently the main opportunity to be involved with AFS is by hosting an AFSer for next school year or sending a student abroad in the near future.
However, volunteers are needed to support the exchange students and their families all through the year. The Miss Tennky Area AFS Volunteer Leadership Team is a group of unpaid financially volunteers who believe in fostering peace and understanding in the world. AFS is a multicultural, international not-for profit organization. AFS has been the leading exchange organization since 1947 and now partners with 90 countries.
