"Whether you’re planting a community garden in Jamaica, practicing Spanish in Colombia, or cycling with locals in Germany, every personal friendship you create when you travel plays a small part in building a more peaceful world.
Multiply that effect by 18,000 – that’s the number of people around the world already committed to peace through friendship. They are the Friendship Force.
With volunteers on the ground in 70 countries, our programs bring these diverse people together, into one another’s cultures and even homes, to share one-of-a-kind experiences not available to regular tourists.
Through these exciting personal encounters, strangers become friends – and if we can build a world of friends, we can build a world of peace."
