Yayasan Antarabudaya Malaysia welcomes families of varied economic, religious and ethnic backgrounds.



Each host family is expected to provide:

  • A separate bed, which can be in a shared room with a host sibling of similar age and same gender
  • A quiet place to study
  • Three meals daily
  • Local transportation (AFS participants are not permitted to drive while on the program)
  • Treatment as a member of the family, which may include household rules, responsibilities, and privileges.

If your family is interested in hosting an AFS participant, please complete the AFS Host Family Application From. You may also call us at (03) 7887 6866 and speak to one of our staff members about hosting.
