Volunteers - The basement of AFS!

Helping to bring the people of the world together is exciting, interesting, and rewarding work. For more than 50 years AFS Volunteers have been building bridges of intercultural understanding and changing the way the world works.

AFS, as a truly volunteer-based organization, has always had a strong commitment to more than 300,000 volunteers worldwide. Our global partnership enables more than 11,000 students to benefit from an AFS international educational exchange experience every year

What is Volunteering?

To volunteer means to offer your time and skills without getting any money for it. When you volunteer, you contribute your efforts to a larger cause. Free time is free because we are asking you to donate part of it to us.
