1. Develop a customized intercultural learning curriculum for AFS students. Facilitated by trained volunteers and staff, the AFS Student Learning Journey & Curriculum will enhance their exchange experience and build intercultural skills that will last a lifetime.
2. Turn the host family experience into a facilitated intercultural learning adventure for the entire family. The AFS Host Family Intercultural Learning Journey will help family members and hosted students develop tangible skills through fun educational activities and discussions.
3. Expand the AFS Intercultural Link Learning Program for volunteers and staff. Increasing the intercultural competency of our facilitators and the number of trainers improves the quality of AFS programs and the transformative learning of our students, families and others we touch.
4. Create an Educators & Schools Relations community and handbook. Well-researched guidelines, resources and tools will help local AFS organizations develop or improve partnerships with educational institutions and ministries.
