AFS International

We are getting a group of students for Snoghøj High School from August - among other things:

  • a 17-year-old girl who comes from Flemish-speaking Belgium. She will be a student at Snoghøj High School from 14 August to 14 December 2024. She is good at English and likes sports – she enjoys cycling, volleyball and skiing, among other things. In addition, she is passionate about the theater and stage performance and is interested in design and music.
  • a 17-year-old boy who comes from Flemish-speaking Belgium. He will be a student at Snoghøj High School from 14 August to 16 June 2025. He is good at English and is interested in theater and art. He is a scout at home in Belgium. Lionel is vegetarian but flexible.
  • a 17-year-old girl who comes from Flemish-speaking Belgium. She will be a student at Snoghøj High School from 14 August to 14 December 2024. She is very good at English and is passionate about the theater and creative activities, such as to paint and draw. In addition, she is fond of nature and likes hiking. Anne is a vegetarian.

The young people must be quite ordinary high school students at Snoghøj High School, but we also want to give them the opportunity to experience life outside the high school. That is why we are looking for good contact families.

Being a contact family for an AFS high school student is a really good opportunity to get to know another culture and another country. At the same time, the contact family will be visited by a person who will be included as part of the family and thus make the family see themselves and their surroundings with fresh eyes.

Being a contact family for a high school student is a fairly flexible task. The young person lives at the college and in many cases becomes absorbed in college life. But many also think that it is exciting and pleasant to have a Danish contact family and thus get an insight into life outside the college.

How often and how you are together is something you agree with the young person, but you must be prepared to spend time with the young person approx. monthly.

If this has caught your interest, please contact us via "Contact the Organisation" button.
