International AFS Youth Volunteer Forum

Please note that registrations for the International AFS Youth Volunteer Forum, to take place in April 16th-19th in Buenos Aires, are open.

As part of its 60th Anniversary Celebrations, AFS Argentina & Uruguay is inviting 50 young AFS volunteers to come together for 3-day Forum to discuss and shape the future of AFS and act as multipliers for positive change within their organizations. 

The goal is to have representatives from throughout the Network, with balance and diversity among the participants. Applicants must meet the following criteria:
·       Are energetic changemakers;
·       Are 30 years old or younger;
·       Have at least two years of experience as an AFS Volunteer;
·       Be endorsed by their AFS partner organization (after having submitted the application).

AFS Argentina & Uruguay have very kindly offered to cover room and board for participants selected. Unfortunately AFS in South Africa does not have the funds to sponsor volunteers to attend. If you are interested in applying, you would need to be able to fund:

·       Transportation to and from Buenos Aires
·       Transfer from/to the Ezeiza Airport
·       Dinner on Wednesday (free evening)

For more details and the online application please follow the link below. The application deadline is March 1st, 2015.
