Douglas County AFS Announcement

Douglas County AFS asks for your support!

We have great community leaders among our membership, and one is the Douglas County AFS Coordinator, Tina Arredondo, who announced at our Annual Meeting last night that host families are still needed for AFS international exchange students for the 2017-18 school year.

In particular, AFS would like to place one or more of the YES Program students;

YES is a State Dept-sponsored scholarship for students from countries with significant Muslim populations.

We have a YES-program girl from Pakistan to place, as well as YES students from Saudi Arabia, India, Indonesia, Gaza, Bangladesh, Libya, Lebanon, Senegal, and the West Bank. Other AFS students are coming from Italy, New Zealand, Turkey, Norway, Spain, Germany, Argentina, and more.

The mission of AFS 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.
