5 for 5 is a new campaign, running July 10-14th, with the goal of finding host families across the US for the students arriving this fall. Each day of the campaign, every AFS-USA volunteer will receive an email with a simple challenge to complete. By completing each challenge, you’ll be helping to secure host families and promoting AFS! Use the hashtag #WhyHostingMatters throughout the campaign so we can track your efforts and re-share your posts! Thank you in advance for participating and truly making a difference.
Daily Volunteer Challenges:
Day 1 – Monday, July 10: Craft a message using this template sharing your personal AFS story. If you don’t have one you’d like to share, utilize the sample in the template.
Day 2 – Tuesday, July 11: Add your message to a social media group, on NextDoor, or another community forum. Send us a screenshot at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to win some AFS swag!
Day 3 – Wednesday, July 12: Text your message to 5 people using this template.
Day 4 – Thursday , July 13: Share information about an upcoming hosting info session with your network – email, text, post on social media!
Day 5 – Friday, July 14: Nominate a host using this form - think of those in your community who may make great hosts!
