Foundations Course Opportunity for AFS-USA Volunteers

Foundations Course Opportunity for AFS-USA Volunteers

What is ‘Foundations’?

Foundations of Intercultural Learning and Global Competence, otherwise known as “Foundations”, is the introductory level of the AFS Intercultural Link Learning Program — AFS’s training and assessment program to increase our intercultural and global competence as volunteers and staff. For more information about the training, including an introductory video, please click here.

To maximize the impact on your team, AFS recommends that Teams allocate these spots to volunteers involved in the orientation and support of host families and participants, and those volunteers who are in a position to share their learning with fellow Team members.

Volunteers who participate will be expected to complete 11 online learning modules and participate in 2-3 Zoom calls with AFS Volunteers from around the world. Participating volunteers may also be asked to complete a pre- and post-course assessment and to share the impact of the training on their experience as an AFS Volunteer in 2022.
