At AFS, we believe in the radical idea that young people can make a difference.

AFS's founders were young volunteers who ventured overseas to help those in need - and their spirit of volunteerism lives on today.

Now it's YOUR turn.

Educators, bring global impact into your classroom.

Global Competency is critical to the success of today's 8th-12th grade students, but we know it's hard to bring into an already-packed curriculum. AFS Project: Change lesson plans, created through a partnership with Scholastic Inc., make it easy to introduce contemporary, global issues in a unique and engaging way.
