AFS Intercultural Exchanges is the Hong Kong partner of a global non-profit organization founded in 1947 and operating in more than 50 countries to provide intercultural experiences. Every year AFS Hong Kong hosts and sends over 200 participants on its flagship year-long homestay exchange for secondary school students to over 30 countries. Although staff-run, AFS relies on a global network of tens of thousands of alumni, families, and other volunteers to deliver the AFS experience, which has transformed lives of more than 500,000 participants over 60 years.

To meet the growing needs in Intercultural Learning (ICL) and Global Competence Education (GCE), we are running a series of training workshops for youths to acquire knowledge and skills in developing their intercultural competence and deal with cultural adjustment. We are looking for energetic and engaging individuals with a genuine interest in social change, education and the empowerment of young people.
