AFS



Our community and school owe the families and the students they hosted many thanks for all they are doing to promote international peace and understanding!

Bring the World to Your Home!
Host an AFS Student

AFS Families of the Past


Bringing an AFS student into our community benefits not only the student being hosted, but also our school and community at large, and your family. We all gain an opportunity to learn about a different culture and share our mutual concerns about the world situation and our hopes for peace. We also get the opportunity to give our AFSers a view of "real" America, as opposed to the image portrayed by films and television programs.

Many DeRuyter area families have hosted in the past, and have made a great difference in the lives of the students they welcome as well as their own. Won't you consider hosting - for a year, or a semester? For more information (at no obligation) please use the contacts below.

AFS-USA works 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-USA (formerly the American Field Service), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is a leader in intercultural learning and offers international exchange programs in more than 40 countries around the world through independent, nonprofit AFS Organizations, each with a network of volunteers, a professionally staffed office, and headed up by a volunteer board.

We've been exchanging students throughout the world for more than 65 years. That's six decades of history and experience in international education with an exemplary record of safety, security, and service to students, parents, and educators.
