Making Liaison Assignments for 2022-2023 Cycle

Making Liaison Assignments for 2022-2023 Cycle

As we dive into another Hosting season, we would like to remind and encourage Area Teams to get a jumpstart on identifying Support volunteers for the coming cycle. The sooner Support volunteers are identified, the sooner we can get them registered, trained and ready to be linked to a Student and Host Family when the time comes.

The Liaison Assignment Widget is opening Monday May, 2nd for Support volunteer assignments for the 2022-2023 placements. This widget allows Liaison Assignment Coordinators to identify Support volunteers for the coming cycle and assign Liaisons and other Support volunteer roles to Students and Host Families.

Liaison Assignment Coordinators as well as any volunteer interested in learning more about the Liaison Assignment Widget in MyAFS are welcome to join the upcoming webinar on:

  • Tuesday May 17th at 8pm EST, 7pm CST, 6pm MST, 5pm PST, 4pm AK

You will be sent log-in information after you register. If you are unable to attend, the session will be recorded and posted on MyAFS Help and Learning.

If you are not actively assigned as your Team’s Liaison Assignment Coordinator and are interested in this role, please reach out to your Area Team Chair or other volunteer leadership. If you don’t know who comprises your volunteer leadership, you can contact for assistance.

Thank you so much to everyone involved for helping prepare our Students, Host Families, and Liaisons for a successful exchange year ahead!
