AFS helps schools create dynamic intercultural workshops, class exchanges and events to enrich the entire school community.

The AFS Global Citizenship Education Agenda

AFS prepares and activates global citizens of all ages and backgrounds—and we support a global movement to advance intercultural learning and global citizenship education, especially in schools, university and youth organizations.

Formation à la citoyenneté mondiale

Learning as a journey of change

Intercultural challenges and learning moments are inevitable parts of our everyday lives, our classrooms and public spaces.

To prepare people to engage effectively across cultural and other differences, we offer transformative learning journeys that are customized to students, families, volunteers, adults and communities.

Each AFS journey is designed around these six principles:

1. Learning as a journey of change
2. Goals-based curriculums + methods
3. Immersive experiences + structured learning
4. Non-formal learning environments
5. Experiential learning = enhanced learning
6. Learning for life + lifelong learning

L’approche éducative d’AFS

Apprentissage interculturel AFS pour étudiants en programme d'échange

Companies and universities seek students and employees adults who have a sense of the world beyond their own communities—and are comfortable interacting with people from other countries and cultures. Find out how our skills-building curriculum prepares young people to live, work and help make the world a better place at home or across the globe.

Apprentissage interculturel AFS pour familles d'accueil

The AFS Host Family Program is now supported by the AFS Host Family Intercultural Learning Journey. The Learning Journey helps families support their hosted students’ intercultural experience—and prepares family members to become global citizens. 

Apprentissage interculturel AFS pour bénévoles et collaborateurs

The AFS Intercultural Link Learning Program helps our volunteers and staff improve their intercultural skills, teaches them about key education theories and practices, and makes them better able to support the learning of others.

«Le travail d’AFS est d’une importance évidente pour les programmes et activités actuelles de l’UNESCO, en particulier dans les domaines de l’éducation, de la jeunesse et du dialogue interculturel. En effet, la coopération entre l’UNESCO et AFS repose sur des bases solides nées des domaines d’intérêt communs, de synergies et des collaborations antérieures.

— Irina Bokova, Directrice générale de l’UNESCO
