Be part of our 1st Queer AFS Community Meeting!

Dear AFS volunteers & friends

We have some amazing news to share with you! After starting the Queer AFS initiative back in June, we are very excited to take the next step to finally launch our project. But to get ready for take-off, we need YOUR help!

We’d like to invite you to our kick-off meeting on 4th September 2021 in Zurich. We’ll be meeting in the morning to discuss ideas, define volunteer functions and help the Queer AFS project get started, so you’ll have plenty of time to join this year’s Pride festivities in the afternoon. Or as we like to call it: The best of both worlds!

Do you want to support the Queer AFS initiative and get engaged in a new and exciting project here at AFS? Do you want to make queer topics at AFS more visible and transform AFS Switzerland into a place where we celebrate queerness and diversity in all its forms? Then join us and be part of our 1st Queer AFS Community meeting!

Please fill out this form to participate: https://forms.gle/Jccpp2NNmRNhuj72A
We are looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th September!

Stay safe & and take care,

Paula, Timon, Ella, Evelyne, Lisa, Héloïse, Patricio and Quentin

Dear AFS Switzerland Community,

We are happy to share some exciting news with you! A few weeks ago, a group of volunteers initiated our new project Queer AFS Switzerland. Pride month might just have ended, however Queer AFS Switzerland plans to have a long-lasting impact in our community.

We, Queer AFS Switzerland, aim to be the contact point for questions concerning LGBTIQ+ topics during any AFS experience. Our main goal is the support, visibility and inclusion of queer people and their environment before, during and after their AFS cultural exchange year. We want to celebrate our diverse community and we are proud of who we are!

We need your help to achieve all our goals. We are especially looking for input and voices from the queer community, but of course everyone’s welcome!

If you are interested to actively work with us and be part of the Queer AFS Switzerland group, drop an email.
