We make presentations at schools to introduce AFS to wider masses before the written examination (1st assessment). We inform the participants about the history, values and goals of AFS, as well as application requisites. Volunteers visit different regions to receive more applications for the program.
Written exams (1st assessment)
The prerequisite of being an AFS’er is to succeed in this stage. Exams take place in 6 cities across Turkey and volunteers organize all the logistics.
Interviews (2nd asessment)
Volunteers assess the candidates who succeed in written examination with interviews based on which the candidates are selected.
Volunteers visit candidates’ families in order to get know them thoroughly, inform them about all the processes, and answer their questions.
Each year in April, we meet with the families of AFS’ers whose children are in their exchange year. During the brunch, we share our experiences, answer their questions and help them overcome their worries.
Farewell and greetings
Every year we are saying good bye from airport to participants who go to their exchange countries. Likewise, we go to airport to greet AFS’ers who complete their AFS year.
