Friendship Force Florida Suncoast is part of Friendship Force International. We are not just a travel club, but we do enjoy traveling and hosting new friends from around the world.
As you learn more about Friendship Force, you will find that our members are attracted by the cultural exchange, social activities and travel opportunities offered by our local chapter and our international Friendship Force organization that is based in
We do this by connecting people from different countries at the personal level through inbound and outbound exchanges. When we visit or receive Friendship Force members from other countries and cultures, true understanding can develop through the sharing of meals, conversation and the routines of daily life. Since 1977, FFI has brought together millions of people.
Find out how you can Get Involved with the Friendship Force.
Friendship Force International provides opportunities to explore new countries and cultures from the inside by bringing people together at the personal level. Through the signature program of home hospitality, local hosts welcome international visitors into their culture, sharing with them meals, conversation, and the best sights and experiences of their region.
In a typical Friendship Force program, a local club (chapter) prepares an itinerary of cultural activities, inviting members from clubs in other countries to come for four to seven days and stay with them in their homes.
There are many ways to explore the world through the Friendship Force. For example, you may:
- Join a group making a cultural exploration of another country or of another region of your own country.
- Bring the world to your doorstep by hosting international visitors in your home.
- Join a cultural travel program formed around common interests such as gardening, hiking, wine and many others.
- Get involved with a Friendship Force club in your city, or organize one yourself.
