We look forward to welcoming participants from all countries to Russia for this school program with a host family.
Exchange students are hosted in different areas of European part of Russia.
Every chapter has its own volunteer network and plan of activities. Every mandatory and optional activity could be organized differently from town to town, from year to year. AFS students hosted in Russia are mostly placed in smaller towns as they are safer and offer a chance for the best possible experience. Moreover, they will be in a frequent contact with AFS volunteers,who are mostly school teachers.
