Unique experiences, unforgettable moments. Unlimited territory to explore. Uruguay is full of stories to discover.

We look forward to welcoming participants from all countries. In this program you will be hosted by a local family, who will show you the community, make you feel comfortable and help you make friends. You will be enrolled at the 10th, 11th, or 12th year, depending on your current academic level. Moreover, you will be in a frequent contact with AFS volunteers, who will assist you anytime you need. The volunteers want you to adapt well to your new reality, so they will prepare some interesting activities during your many orientations.
