The Volunteers: Americans Join World War I, 1914-1919 was created by AFS Intercultural Programs, together with a distinguished Curriculum Development Committee of historians, educators, and archivists. The lesson plans were developed in partnership with the National World War I Museum and Memorial and Primary Source, a non-profit resource center dedicated to advancing global education.
