Our AFS year is winding down.


With only a few weeks to go, thousands of AFS students in the U.S. for the past 10 months are preparing to go home. Most are struggling with competing emotions: they feel sad at the thought of leaving the life they created here and at the same time are excited to be going home. We often say that the day our son or daughter leaves is the “worst” day of our year. And that’s true.

Here are photos of a few of the students and families we’ve come to know and love through AFS. If you’d like more information about hosting an exchange student, visit the AFS website here. Or send me a message and we can talk.

We really do believe that AFS is changing the world for the better: one student, one family at a time.

One Person at a Time Does it All!
