What is an AFS Intercultural Club?
An AFS Intercultural Club is a space for international/intercultural discussion and discovery. It is open to both AFS returnees and non-returnees.
It is a space where returnees will continue growth from their time abroad and will be able to share their experiences and lessons they learned abroad with fellow returnees, members of their AFS Intercultural Club, and their community. Club members will be challenged to explore their home and home culture while exploring other cultures, and their subconscious biases and assumptions about the world will be challenged.
It is a space for fun and exciting discoveries. Each week a new topic will be discussed that will open the table to discussion and learning about other countries and cultures, as well as discussing the US and variety of American cultures.
It is a space for building community and helping your community; many community service, volunteering and fundraising opportunities exist for AFS Intercultural Club members.
