Every year the Arizona AFS Team welcomes foreign students and sends American students off to live in foreign countries. Our ability to do this depends on our committed volunteers, who are the heart and soul of AFS! We are always looking for more support to enrich student and host family experiences. Join us by signing up here. If you are currently a volunteer, please click here to access your account.
