Become a Host

Experience the world with Friendship Force

One of the best ways to promote global understanding across the barriers that separate people is to host an ambassador in your home. Show them your community, city, country and culture, and learn about theirs over meals, laughter, and shared experiences.

Great Reasons to Host

Are you considering travel to another country, but want to know more about it from a citizen of that region before you go? Consider hosting an ambassador from that area in your home for a week. Do you have young ones in your home, and want to open their minds to cultures other than your own? Is your budget too tight to travel? Consider hosting for a week to make a friend from one of sixty countries around the world! Are you studying a foreign language? Would you like to possibly host someone for a week in your home who is a native speaker? Have you made a friend with someone from another country when traveling? Would you like to pay that forward by hosting a foreign visitor in your home to teach about your culture and daily life?

Stories of Friendship

A friendship that would never end

The most touching and impactful was the relation that was created between the four of us. We shared laughter and warm feelings and a permanent bond was created. At the conclusion of the week, as the four of us were standing on their roof and launching two lighted air kites that floated into the distance, we promised each other the friendship that was created between us would never end. The tears flowed when we finally said goodbye at the airport.

People travel for many reasons: To escape the monotony of their everyday life. To explore diverse landscapes. To relax and recuperate. Within Friendship Force, we travel for all of those same reasons. But we’re also on a quest for something else, something bigger and better than ourselves. We’re in search of true cultural understanding in a world rife with uncertainty. We see opportunities to present our own culture in unique and unexpected ways. We strive towards a common ground that we know exists among mankind. We believe that through travel and hosting, we have the opportunity to make our world a better place. Join us on this quest and learn more about the world...
