ASF in the United States

Volunteer Service and Summer Camps

You want to work for peace, understanding, solidarity, gain experience living abroad and becoming part of an international volunteer group?

With ASF, you can get involved for one year in a variety of areas that promote remembrance and social justice. Or you can immerse yourself in an ASF summer camp experience for two weeks where you promote peace and understanding in a specific project.

ASF/ARSP in new colors and shapes

Is anything different? Yes, ASF/ARSP has since September 2023 its website in new colors, shapes and fonts.

“Hello! My name is Rose Shafer and I am a soon-to-be graduate of theCollege of William and Mary majoring in History and German. I initially started learning German for fun, but my interest in German ended up taking me on many adventures: I spent my junior year in Freiburg, where I completed an internship at an archive and explored museums and historical sites throughout Europe, and I spent my senior year writing an honors thesis and a journal article about East German history. I am thrilled to return to Germany, where I can put my passion for history to use by fostering remembrance of the Holocaust and its victims. I believe that understanding the past can help us
shape a more peaceful future, and I hope to do my part in creating that future during my year in Buchenwald Memorial Site.”
