​What is a Friendship Force Journey?

A JOURNEY:

  • is a process through which Friendship Force Members around the world travel to other countries or provinces and stay in homes of Friendship Force Members for one week per journey

  • club members travel as ambassadors in groups of 15-25 members

  • members develop lasting friendships which fosters goodwill world-wide

  • Ambassadors live for a week in the homes of average citizens, sharing their living space, eating as they eat, experiencing their daily travails and exchanging hopes and dreams

  • journeying with Friendship Force will allow you to see the country of your choice from a different perspective

  • journeys are often extended by members for personal travel

  • for those not wishing to travel, there are many opportunities for them to enjoy the cultural experience by hosting Ambassadors from other countries, acting as Day or Dinner Hosts when our club is hosting 

  • INBOUND JOURNEY

    • our members host Ambassadors from the travelling club in our homes

  • OUTBOUND JOURNEY

    • our members stay in our hosts' homes.
