AFS Global Prep programmes offer short-term, theme-based, group experiences that address issues of importance to young people while facilitating their growth as global citizens. They will thrive in an incredible new place, unlike anything they’ve experienced so far, and create authentic connections that will last a lifetime! It’ gives students the opportunity to pursue your interests, while becoming a real global citizen through an AFS structured intercultural learning programme. You will leave your mark on the communities you visit and work to create a positive impact for yourself, your local community and the world.
