AFS prepares and activates global citizens of all ages and backgrounds—and we support a global movement to advance intercultural learning and global citizenship education, especially in schools, university and youth organisations.
Universities and employers seek students and young adults who have a sense of the world beyond their own communities—and are comfortable interacting with people from other countries and cultures.
AFS helps schools create dynamic intercultural workshops, class exchanges and events to enrich the entire school community. We collaborate with educators and education ministries to develop local, regional and national intercultural learning and global citizenship education policies and initiatives.
