From the beginning, AFS has been a vehicle for committed individuals who dare to make a difference. Courage, volunteerism and learning have been constants throughout our history. A century ago, this resulted in thousands of lives saved by volunteer AFS Ambulance Drivers in WWI. Today, AFS transform thousands of lives every year with its international and intercultural programs. Creating change is what AFSers do, and we call it the AFSEffect.  

Creating change is what AFSers do, and we call it the AFS Effect.
