About AFS-Miss Tennky Area Volunteer Leadership Team

Location:

2233 Roanoke Rd, Clarksville, TN 37043, US

Mission Statement

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

Description

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.
