All AFS participants being featured in media interviews or articles must first provide their consent. Most hosted and sending students will have already given consent in their application; however, you should confirm this before proceeding with media involvement.
If you need to procure consent from a student or host family member, you can use the Media Consent and Release form here. If students are under 18 years of age, their natural parents will also need to sign this form. For assistance contacting the natural parents of a hosted participant, please contact your AFS-USA Support Specialist.
