Egy fantasztikus kulturális tapasztalat az egész családnak

Megteremtheted családodnak, gyerekeidnek a lehetőséget, hogy a világ egy távoli szegletét hozzák otthonotokba, ha az AFS program keretében befogadtok egy külföldi diákot. Add meg Te is a lehetőséget szeretteidnek arra, hogy belekóstoljanak a világ sokszínűségébe, és megmutassák saját világuk gazdagságát másoknak is. A gyerekek legtöbbször kifejezetten élvezik, hogy a kultúra követeiként, bevezethetik az új testvérüket a helyi szokások, hagyományok és nemzeti ünnepeink világába. Az élet legapróbb mozzanata is, -főzés vagy városnézés- lehetőséget adhat arra, hogy felfedezzék és értékeljék a fiatalok kulturális és egyéb különbségeiket. Ezt nevezzük mi #AFS hatásnak!

“There are times in a life that you cannot describe, those you simply have to experience. It’s that feeling we as parents had when someone else’s child called us mom and dad when he called us from across the world to tell us he enrolled in a university or that he has a girlfriend. These things are indescribable, and only those who experience it can understand.”

–Alisa Salopek, host mother from Serbia

What is an AFS host family?

AFS has invited families to welcome international students into their homes since 1947. Long considered a key element in the well being of exchange students, host families provide so much more than shelter and meals.
