For over 70 years, AFS has given families in the U.S. the opportunity to enrich their lives by connecting them with international exchange students. Thousands of families have seen the benefits of welcoming future world leaders into their homes with AFS, inspiring a new generation of global citizens with a deeper understanding and appreciation of other cultures.

In partnership with the U.S. Department of State, AFS is accepting applications for families to welcome exchange students on scholarships from over 90 countries to live and study in America for a year, a semester or 6 to 12 weeks.

Before you know it, you'll be a proud AFS Host Family.
