Friendship Force

Become a Host   


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.


Travel the world   


Be welcomed into someone’s home. Immerse yourself in their local culture. Invite travelers

from other places into your own home and proudly share your culture with them.

Since 1977, the travel exchange movement pioneered by Friendship Force International has given people the unique opportunity to connect

in ways that transcend boundaries to promote goodwill, respect, and understanding.


This kind of intimate, life changing experience may not be for everyone, but for thousands of Friendship Force members worldwide, the personal relationships we’ve established are a powerful and authentic way to impact positive change and empathy around the world.


MAKE FRIENDS ACROSS THE WORLD


 Become an ambassador of the

 Friendship Force today.

Explore: We explore new  countries and regions. We explore new cultures and  new ways to connect across  the barriers that separate us.


Understand: By sharing a  home, meals, conversation  and everyday experiences,  people become friends,  seeing beyond governments and borders into the heart of  a country and its people. By combining home hospitality  with cultural exploration, we reach a new level of understanding.


  Serve: Exploration leads to  understanding. Understanding leads to an  acceptance of our common  humanity and the desire to  serve 

our global village –  with words and actions.

LAKE BAIKAL:  RUSSIA’S ENDANGERED WORLD HERITAGE SITE




Join us to hear how climate change is affecting Lake Baikal in Siberia, which is the largest lake (by volume) on our planet.  The lake contains 20% of the world's total unfrozen freshwater reserves.  Baikal has more water than the five Great Lakes combined, and it is the deepest lake in the world with a maximum depth of more than a mile.  Lake Baikal is also the oldest freshwater lake in the world, dating back more than 25 million years.


In 1996, UNESCO designated Lake Baikal as a World Heritage Site stating: “The lake contains an outstanding variety of endemic flora and fauna, which is of exceptional value to evolutionary science. It is also surrounded by a system of protected areas that have high scenic and other natural values.”


Protecting Lake Baikal will be an incredibly challenging initiative in the current political/geopolitical environment. UNESCO may add Lake Baikal to its List of World Heritage Sites in Danger, as many environmental laws governing the area expired in the last year.  But will that be enough?
