Join Us As An Ambassador of Friendship
Did you know that Friendship Force was nominated
for the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize for fostering mutual
respect among nations?
We are very proud that President Jimmy Carter was an
early promoter of the group. He knew that having
people get to know their global neighbours
would foster world peace.
Friendship Force is a non-profit cultural organization
focused on promoting understanding,
cultural education and citizen diplomacy
through homestay journeys and personal friendships.
There are Friendship Force clubs in
more than 60 countries on six continents.
Every year, more than 15,000 members take part in
over 300 Journeys, either travelling
to another region of the world or
introducing their home to visitors.
The excitement of authentic travel and
behind-the-scenes experiences is made even more
meaningful as strangers become friends. As we share
different perspectives, we discover common ground.

Friendship Force International
Our local Friendship Force Club was founded
in May, 2010. Since then our membership has grown
from 11 to 29. We have visited fifteen other groups in Europe,
United States, Mexico, Central America, New Zealand,
Australia, and Asia.
Travel is not the only way to get acquainted with our
world. Our members have also welcomed a dozen
groups of international travelers who came to know us
and our little corner of Canada.
In addition to traveling abroad with our own club,
many of our members have taken advantage
of opportunities to travel with other Friendship Force
clubs to international and Canadian destinations
of personal interest to them.
Travelling is the essence of Friendship Force
International but through participation in our local
club, members gain far more. Friendships are built right
here at home as members meet on a regular basis to
make plans while sharing food, fun, and laughter.
Join us at any meeting to learn more about how
Friendship Force can add unique experiences and
new friends to your life.
