AFS NETWORK

 

AFS is a non-profit international exchange organization for students and adults that operates in more than 50 countries, and organizes and supports intercultural learning experiences. Founded by volunteer ambulance drivers following WWII, and sustained to this day by an international cadre of tens of thousands of volunteers, AFS has transformed the lives of millions of students, families and individuals.

THE AFS STORY

 

In 2012, the AFS Foundation started creating a virtual museum. We have built a home for our history with individual rooms (in 3D) for each period, up to the 1990s. In vintage environments you have access to picture galleries, video clips and audio recordings. They let you explore the past and relive your own memories. An extensive library contains hundreds of documents and books.

THE ARCHIVE

 

The Archive contains a comprehensive collection of material on the history of AFS – documents, letters, images, video clips, audio files, literature and some biographical information on ambulance drivers and, to a lesser extent, AFS notables.
