AFS Intercultural Programs is closely monitoring the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures and actions by global health experts and government officials, including the declaration by the World Health Organization of the COVID-19 pandemic. In these circumstances many countries have started to suspend schools, closed borders, and enforced strict quarantine measures.
Update on the AFS Response to COVID-19
Creating global citizens, empowering changemakers
How AFS prepares Global Citizens
These days you don’t have to go far to find an AFSer making a difference in local communities, across industries or at the forefront of an important international issue or social cause.
AFS delivers mission-driven impact three ways
We develop active global citizens to take action
We globalize schools and institutions with tools and programs
We expand access to intercultural education with scholarships and outreach
Help AFS create change!
“Broadening the perspectives of our next generation of leaders and empowering them to communicate, negotiate and collaborate across differences is mission critical if we want to combat the rising tide of intolerance we see everywhere.”
— DANIEL OBST, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF AFS INTERCULTURAL PROGRAMS
