The #AFSeffect: Daring to Create Change

Creating change is what AFSers do, and we call it the AFS Effect.

What is your AFS Effect?


Welcome to the world of AFS!



Each year, Yayasan AFS Antarabudaya Malaysia sends more than 200 exchange students abroad for year, semester and short term programs (including programs that focus on language study and community service), and welcomes more than 100 exchange students from other countries to Malaysia.

While in Malaysia, students study in local high schools and live with host families to learn what it is like to live as a member of a family and community within our country.

AFS impact can be seen through the success of the former AFS participants. Many have achieved careers as diplomats, educators, business executives and involved members of their communities. AFS offers the world a greater hope for a lasting peace when an important segment of the leadership of the world shares the powerful bond of an AFS experience. Learn more about us
