Student moves will be determined and evaluated on a case-by-case basis by AFS-USA. Due to the potential long-term impact of COVID-19 on host communities and especially schools, student moves, whether to a different local family or to a family in another region of the United States, will be severely limited. As always, we encourage teams to identify pre-screened host families, who would be able to host a student on short notice. AFS-USA remains committed to student safety and the promotion of the AFS Learning Goals and the support process through mutual engagement.
Volunteers should consult the COVID-19 FAQ and Resources section for the most up-to-date information regarding changes in Hosting for 2020.
