Friendship Force International

A nonprofit organization

Friendship Force International is a non-profit cultural organization focused on promoting understanding, cultural education and citizen diplomacy through homestay Journeys and personal friendships. We are based in more than 60 countries and in six continents, with 15,000 active members and over 300 Journeys taking place each year.

Our programs bring diverse people together into each other’s cultures and homes to share one-of-a-kind experiences not available to regular tourists. Through these exciting personal encounters, strangers become friends – and we know that by experiencing different views, you can discover common ground.

Our mission is to promote global understanding across the barriers that separate people. Each individual can make a contribution to global goodwill. The Friendship Force worldwide network of clubs and individuals seeks to overcome differences among people and nations. 

As a result of the travel complications in 2020, we have expanded our catalogue of virtual experiences. We are so excited to now be offering virtual Journeys, pen pal matching, exciting guest speakers, and more!
