Plan Events and Activities for high-school aged Exchange Students

Description

AFS-USA volunteers support high school-aged foreign exchange students during their program year in central Illinois.  We are always looking for more interested volunteers to help plan and run the activities and orientations we organize for them during their time here. 

In this role, you could organize events for students going abroad or plan orientations for international students arriving in your area. You’ll also be able to get involved with and coordinate social, cultural, educational, and sporting events for exchange students, their host families, and the community as a whole.

Whether you help organize one event or many, you’ll contribute to making sure that AFSers get the most out of their experience. If you enjoy working with other dedicated volunteers on activities the whole community will enjoy, then this role could be right for you!
