I think that should be in the links because it is a great resource for exchange students

Walt Disney[edit]

There is a recent addition of Walt Disney as an AFS ambulance driver added by User: It is uncited and I presume it's a joke. As long as I've been involved with AFS, I've never heard that one before. Does anyone know of a source that can verify? I am removing it until someone can cite a reference.

This article seems very biased, even encouraging readers to make donations to the AFS program. And I understand that only some AFS workers are volunteers, though this page suggests that they all are. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:47, 16 December 2007 (UTC)


Should there be a page with stories of returnee AFS students? With tips and things for future students? Lovingnews1989 10:26, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

great idea, also a section for returnees to update packing list and advice for their specific country and program! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:48, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:AFSLogo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:AFSLogo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 17:25, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Student profile[edit]

AFS Newcastle volunteers Jenny & Fiona feel we are not computer savvy enough about how to access student profiles via the wiki. Please tell us how via email would be best. We are trying to look at Tim's profile prior to interviewing. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:35, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Brazil and AFS[edit]

This site: [Cambio] is in Portuguese and talks about AFS and others services alike.Agre22 (talk) 14:00, 15 November 2009 (UTC)agre22
