AFS Alumni

We love our Alumni!


An AFS experience changes lives and those who've had one like to stay connected and we love that.

We connect with our Alumni in a range of ways. Some are actively involved, volunteering at a chapter level, some are now sending parents themselves and others are hosting.

Some groups just want to get the Alumni newsletter four times a year and others keep in regular email contact with updates; sending us pictures of any reunions of AFS gatherings.

How connected you want to be as an Alumni is up to you.

Alumni might enjoy reading how today's young people are enjoying their AFS exchanges, please click on the links below:
