I'm interested in hearing from anyone else who went away with AFS. I spent a year in Switzerland in 1998 and that definitely fueled my desire to travel.

What AFS stands for?

AFS is a student exchange programme where 15-18 year olds go and live in another country for 3 - 12 months. You attend a local school and live with a host family.
It starts as American Field Service which provided volunteer ambulance drivers during WWI and WWII.
