Reminder: AFS-USA National Hosting Academy Series

Reminder: AFS-USA National Hosting Academy Series

Dear AFS Volunteers,

We hope you all remain well.

Thanks to all who attended the National Hosting Kick-Off in January – it was great to spend time with you all to kick-off the 2022-23 school year placement cycle together!

As noted during the National Hosting Kick-Off, the Hosting Advisory Group is pleased to invite you to join us and volunteers from across the country for the first in a series of three National Hosting Academy Sessions on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 8:00 – 9:00pm Eastern.

Please register below and join us to collaboratively share best practices for bringing more volunteers into your Team’s hosting efforts.

During the session, we’ll:

  1. Share ideas for bringing more volunteers into your hosting efforts
  2. Discuss volunteer recruitment and ways to build up your hosting team (or any other team)
  3. Talk about Triads – what are they and how can they strengthen teams
  4. Plan to have lots of interactive activities, including a video, attendee poll and breakout groups – so we can all share ideas with one another
  5. Continue to build positive energy as we all work toward our shared placement goals for the 2022-23 school year placement cycle!

We’re very much looking forward to seeing all of you there!

Kind Regards,

The Hosting Advisory Group
