My Time in France and What I Gained From This Experience.02/23/2015How could this program be improved?
I don't see much to be improved. There was a perfect balance between how involved AFS got when it came to filling out applications and then the relationship I had with the AFS volunteers when it came to being with my host family. I wasn't seeing them all the time nor was I talking to them all the time but I know that when I needed them, they were there to help.
