Dear Fellow Educators,
Please, recognize your exchange students and/or teachers who are in your schools at this time. It a great chance to have them talk to other classes about education in other countries. It is also a great time to recruit folks to host exchange students and teachers from other countries and to recognize the many advocates and educators throughout the ages that have enabled us to beome the great nation that we are today. Well over 50 years ago the AFS Amulance Drivers in WWII put their resources together and organized a way to continue their efforts toward promoting peace and goodwill when they began AFS International Programs. Their goal was to eliminate war. Today the AFS exchanges with 43 different countries. Many former AFSers sit in parliments and congresses, make laws, serve as CEOs and ambassadors in their native countries helping their fellow citizens to better understand the world.
