Would you like to discover a whole new culture without actually travelling? Do you want to show the world there’s more to Malaysia than Petronas Twin Towers and Orang Utans?

Hosting an AFS participant gives you the chance to experience a new culture in your own home. It’s a fantastic opportunity.

You’ll be introducing someone to Malaysian life, discovering your own culture and country, and expand your own horizons too.

If your kids are planning an AFS exchange, this will give them a taste of what they are in for. If they have already been on an exchange, this is your chance to enable someone to make an equally important experience.

AFS offers the support you need. All you have to do is carry on as usual and treat your international guest like any other family member. That’s what they come to Malaysia for.

AFS friendships last a lifetime. By welcoming an AFS student, you are making the world a friendlier place and giving your family an unforgettable experience.


Yayasan AFS Antarabudaya Malaysia invites you and your family to play a part in sharing our country, cultures and customs with the world! You will make the lifelong dream of an international student come true, enrich the lives of your family and those in your community and contribute in a significant way to global peace and understanding.

You could host our participants from either one of two programs:

  • School program : 15-18 year-old participants who come to live with Malaysian families and attend secondary school.
  • 18+ program : adults over 18 years of age who come to volunteer for a local community organisation and live with Malaysian families but with more independence.

We are currently in the process of updating our Host Family application form. Thank you for your patience and kind understanding.
