Fostering Peace

Foreign exchange students champion cultural understanding

AFS Intercultural Programs has a critical mission: “to help prevent future conflict through cultural exchange and understanding.” For over 70 years, they have facilitated American students going abroad and foreign students coming to America. We spoke with Rio Rancho high school student Eleyna Maves about her scholarship to go to a Japanese high school and spend a year living and learning about what it is to grow up in that culture.
