What you can do:

HELP US CREATE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR SERBIAN STUDENTS

We invite companies, foundations and individuals to support us in creating more scholarships for students, since for many students in Serbia it would be impossible to take part in international exchanges without scholarships. In order to enable more high school students to go abroad on an exchange programme, we are committed to fundraising activities and each year we provide several full and partial scholarships for the year programme. Some scholarships come from sponsors, such as Banka Intesa, and some come from Interkultura’s scholarship fund.

SUPPORT AFS EDUCATIONAL EVENTS

We are looking for sponsorships for our intercultural learning seminars and conferences. So far, we have received support by the European Federation for Intercultural Learning to organize events such as volunteer or teacher training.

BECOME OUR PARTNER

We are open to like-minded organizations and institutions who would like to organise educational projects with us. We offer our knowledge, expertise, and volunteer network to potential partner organizations.

Empowering people of all ages to respect and appreciate differences

AFS is an inclusive community of global citizens committed to fostering intercultural learning as a powerful peace-building tool. Through AFS study abroad and changemaking programs, our volunteers help students, young adults, families and others take their first steps to becoming global citizens. 

Engaging with my community; meeting people from around the world

“Joining my local group of AFS volunteers gave me the opportunity to develop many skills, such as how to work in a team and interact with people from different backgrounds. As an AFS volunteer, I am more engaged in my community and I meet people from all over the world. Helping students, teachers and families embark on intercultural learning adventures makes me appreciate the importance of world peace and intercultural understanding.”

—Marcela Vazquez, AFS Argentina volunteer
