AFS-USA works to foster global competency among U.S. citizens by providing international and intercultural education opportunities for students, schools, families, and communities through a global volunteer partnership. Each year the Greater Milwaukee Area AFS Team volunteers work hard to find more than 50 host families for foreign exchange students from around the world. Joining us to discuss the benefits of this program are Norwegian AFS student Gard Jorgensen and his "host dad" Chad Bauman.
