Ready to change the world? Volunteer with AFS!


When AFS volunteers give their time, they make a difference in the lives of exchange students, host families, and schools by sharing the importance of intercultural learning.

Volunteers, young and old, are the lifeblood of AFS. Being a volunteer is fun and satisfying. You’ll make friendships that last a lifetime.

We have plenty of roles depending on your skills and the time you have available. You can help out at your AFS Local Group, welcome new arrivals, support host families or talk in a local school. Whatever your talents, we’ll put them to use. The main qualification is your energy and enthusiasm.

We always need more volunteers. So join our international family of 30,000 volunteers in 57 countries. AFS volunteers come from all walks of life, share a spirit of adventure and a desire to make the world a better place.

If that sounds like you, give us a call. We’d love to hear from you.
