AFS’s organizational structure allows all volunteers the chance to achieve a leadership position. To prepare people for these roles, there should be a clear pathway to leadership roles and a process for voicing one’s interest in pursuing this direction.
Leadership trainings and instructional materials currently exist. Although specific qualities and characteristics should be determined at the Partner level, some Network standards include:
- Passion for the AFS mission
- Long-term vision for the organization
- Participation in multiple roles within AFS
