From its early years, AAFSW provided opportunities for Foreign Service children to socialize, ranging from dances to picnics and camping trips. In 1983, Around the World in a Lifetime (AWAL) was formed. This group was established by teens and their parents to assist young people with reentry or to prepare them for an overseas assignment. In 1989, AAFSW joined with the FLO and others to incorporate the Foreign Service Youth Foundation as the sponsoring body for AWAL. The Foundation also now supports a group for younger children.
