Discover Exchange


Are you interested in leaving your life in NZ behind and experiencing the world. Maybe you have always dreamed of travelling to France? Why not stay there for a whole year, discover a new languge, gain a new family and make life lasting friendships? An AFS exchange is the perfect to place to do this.

AFS as an organisation has been around for a long time and can provide a number of challenging and rewarding experiences to anyone ready to take up the challenge

For high school students we can provide Intensive, Semester (6 month) and Year programmes where you will be placed with a family overseas and go to the local school and study with the locals the local way.

For 18+ AFS has a community service programme where a year at school is replaced with a years worth of volounteer community work overseas while still staying with a host family and community.
