The AFS mission is to work toward a more just and peaceful world by providing international and intercultural learning experiences to individuals, families, schools, and communities through a global volunteer partnership. AFS is a worldwide, nonprofit organization that exchanges more than 13,000 students each year among a partnership of more than 50 AFS partner countries. It was established in 1947 by American Field Service volunteer ambulance drivers of World Wars I and II who believed--as AFS believes today--that the way to build a more just and peaceful world begins when people from different countries meet, learn about each other, and begin to understand each other.
