AFS is the most experienced high school exchange organization in the world.

AFS is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote world peace one family at a time. AFS coordinates international exchanges for high school students and teachers in over fifty countries. AFS strongly supports sponsored exchange students, teachers, and host families through local chapters like ours. There are many ways to get involved!

AFS started as the American Field Service, which was a group of American ambulance drivers in Paris during World War I. After the war, they wanted to find a way to promote world peace. The result was AFS!
