AFS-USA 75th Anniversary Community Changemaker Award
The focus of this award is to celebrate the communities and their members that support AFS. Thus, nominees may not be part of the “AFS Family”: Volunteer, Host Family, Sending Family, nor part of an AFS School (Teacher, Principal, School Board, etc.)
Nominees should be a person or group outside of AFS that works to support the Area Team, Chapter, Sponsored Program Cluster and/or mission of AFS locally in their community. Examples:
A community group or organization that hosts events for students or the local AFS Team, such as (but not limited to) Sponsored Program (SP) cluster enrichment activities, fundraising activities, etc.;
A person or group that helps to foster Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) for your AFS Team. For example, a cultural group/organization you may partner with or the sign language interpreter(s) who provides services for orientations;
A group that provides space/resources to AFS to host events;
Local government representatives;
A person who donates their time or services to the local AFS team, (not an AFS-USA Volunteer).
