AFS-USA Opportunities to Volunteer, Hosts, Donate, Study Abroad and More for 2021-22.
The Miss Tennky Area AFS Volunteer Leadership Team (www.afsusa.org/misstennky/) offers many opportunities to be involved as we host and send students though out the word. AFS-USA has been doing this since 1947 very successfully. You may go to www.afsusa.org/volunteer-with-afs to register and/or Becky Heywood (area chair) email@example.com and 615-473-4389 for more information.
Currently, the team does not know which school systems will accept AFSers this fall. If you know that your system will, please, let us know. Student mini-bios that are scheduled to need loving hosts in the fall may be see at www.afsusa.org/host. You will be amazed at their multiplicity of interests and talents.
There are also still slots for students wishing to study abroad for summer, semester and year long 2021-22. Go to www.afsusa.org/study-abroad or locally Christina Pettinelli@afsusa.org or 315-525-7182.
Thank you for helping us share this information and hope you will join us in promoting peace and goodwill in the world.

About AFS-Miss Tennky Area Volunteer Leadership Team

AFS-USA works toward a more just and peaceful world by providing international and interultural learning experiences to individuals, families, schools, and communities through a global volunteer partnership
AFS has been sending teenagers, teachers and young adults abroad for more than 70 years with an exemplary record of safely, security, and service to students, parents, and eductors.
More than 13,000 students go on exchanges every year within the AFS Network, which includes AFS-USA and AFS Partners in more than 90 countries. Support is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a wekk by experienced staff and trained AFS Volunteers who live in the same communities as our students and teachers.
When the American Field Service ambulance drivers returned from volunteering in World War II, they founded AFS as a movement to promote understanding and peace through international student exchange. That mission is as meaningful today as it was back in 1947 when AFS began by exchanging 52 studens from 11 countries formerly at war. Yesterday's ambulance drivers can be compared to today's AFS Exchange Student-ambassadors with the mission of increasing understanding betweeen people, cultures, and countries.
Many of the AFSers who are being sent and those who come to the USA are scholarship students. Opportunities for going as an AFSer may be for a summer, semester, year long or gap year. To learn more about these programs contact www.afs.org/usa and/or call 1-800-AFS-INFO nationally or locally 931-378-7258.
