Try Something New!

An AFS exchange will give you the chance to experience new things and learn a new language.

2015 is your year to experience something new!

Welcome to the world of AFS!

Every year AFS Intercultural Programs Australia provide opportunities for hundreds of our young people to live for a few months or a whole year in another country, where they are immersed in a different culture, living with host families and attending local high schools.

These intercultural learning opportunities change people's lives. Immersion in another culture challenges our own cultural values - the software of our minds. The personal growth and learning that results for both hosted students and their new families is often more profound and long-lasting. Students gain increased maturity and skills, which make them more successful in their academic and working lives.
