Friendship Force International (FFI) is an inclusive , non-religious, non-profit organization with the mission of fostering understanding throughout the world by means of personal contacts and shared experiences that occur during our program of home-stays visits.

The 85± members of our club  invite    you to join.

What do we do?

As "ambassadors" of our club, we explore new countries and cultures "from the inside," by getting together at the personal level, right in our hosts' homes.  

Through this home hospitality, the local hosts can share their lifestyle - meals and conversations - while showing us the best sights and experiences their area has to offer.

We want to see the world the way it really is, and to get to know and understand people from different cultures. The club is non-political, and has no religious connections.

It's very simple. Contact us, and Wendy (our Chair of  Membership) will get an application form to you, and try to arrange for you to come to a meeting or our next social event, etc.

The annual fee is $50 per person - prorated if you join mid-year. The first year's fee also covers the plastic ID badge to wear at our club's social functions and exchange activities. This name tag is available with your choice of attachments, either magnet or pin.

Remember: our Friendship Force is not primarily a travel club. There are two core activities: 

  • traveling in groups, to stay with members of Friendship Force clubs in other countries, and 

  • hosting groups that come from other clubs.

Our club is founded on the idea that wherever you may go, people are people, and differences in culture and language need not create barriers.
