The European Federation for Intercultural Learning (EFIL) is the umbrella structure of AFS organisations in Europe, established in 1971. AFS is a network of exchange organisations in over 60 countries worldwide. With the help of a large number of volunteers they organise short- and long-term intercultural and voluntary service stays for over 12000 young people every year. Most of these exchanges involve deep cultural immersion of the young participants (living in a host family, attending a local school, engagement in the local community activities) and the most common time frame of the programme is a full school year. EFIL supports the 27 European national AFS organisations (plus 2 associate members: Egypt and Tunisia) by promoting synergies in the fields of global education, and providing intercultural learning opportunities to help people develop the knowledge and skills needed to create a more just and peaceful world. EFIL has a strong and consolidated expertise - powered by almost 50 years of experience - in organising seminars and training events for its members, other youth organisations, and their volunteers.
