AFS for Educators & Schools
Schools play an important role in the AFS student exchange experience. They send and host AFS students, and work with AFS to create school-based intercultural learning programs. AFS also collaborates with educators and education ministries to develop local, regional and national intercultural learning and global citizenship education policies and initiatives.
AFS Teacher Exchanges
AFS offers international professional development opportunities designed specifically for educators to become more global in their classroom practice.
AFS Classroom Exchange
AFS arranges short classroom exchange programs for a group of students to meet peers from another country and engage in intercultural learning together.
AFS encourages everyone in our global community to embrace our “learning to live together” philosophy and foster intercultural understanding. To accomplish this, AFS educational programs help future leaders, global citizens and change makers develop essential 21st century intercultural skills to thrive and succeed in a globalized world. These educational goals are to learn and respect differences, communicate and collaborate across cultures, appreciate other cultures, build skills to use in STEM and other key areas, become part of the AFS global community and broaden perspectives about themselves and the world around them.
