Launch of the New Webpage!

As previously announced, in an effort to generate more host family leads, and improve the host family experience, AFS-USA has made considerable updates to the webpage. The new page will go live Wednesday, January 25th! 

Important changes to note: 

  • Those wishing to start an application should be directed to this link:, or the Create an Account page, as the “Start an Application” button will no longer be available on the hosting webpage. 
  • The “Learn More”/ “Get Started” Form has been replaced with a new form: “Become a Host”. The previous Learn More form link will be automatically redirected to the new form.  

We will be announcing additional changes soon, including a new Meet the Students tool!  

Volunteers and staff have been consulted in regard to these changes and we welcome all feedback. Please send questions and comments to Thank you!
