Mission Statement

100 years of volunteerism. 75 years of exchange. AFS-USA honors the legacy of its founders--volunteer WWI and WWII American Field Service ambulance drivers--who emerged from the wars with a bold mission: to help prevent future conflict through cultural exchange and understanding. As a partner in the global AFS network, AFS-USA offers international exchange and education opportunities in over 45 countries and hosts exchange students from 80 countries. True to the spirit of our founders, these intercultural programs are made possible by the dedicated work of AFS Volunteers--more than 3,000 in the U.S. and over 50,000 worldwide. Our diverse study abroad programs vary in length from a year to a few weeks and cover timely and timeless topics such as sustainability and language learning. What every program has in common is a commitment to fostering intercultural and global competence in our students, host families, schools, and communities.
