    Goals / Remit

    EFIL, the European Federation for Intercultural Learning, is the umbrella structure for AFS organisations in Europe. AFS traces its roots back to volunteer ambulance drivers who provided their service during the two World Wars; nowadays, AFS is a network of exchange organisations in over 60 countries. With the help of a large network of volunteers they organise short- and long-term intercultural stays abroad (pupil and volunteer service programmes) for over 13,000 young people every year.
    EFIL was established as an international, non-governmental organisation in 1971 to foster intercultural competence and global education in Europe, through enhanced cooperation among AFS organisations in the continent. Today EFIL comprises 26 AFS organisations in Europe and the North Mediterrenean working together to foster volunteering for European citizenship and pupil mobility as a key tool for internationalisation of school education.
