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.

Ashley Cloud will speak on:


HARRIET TUBMAN & THOMAS GARRETT


Diversity Duo of the Underground R.R.


This talk will explore the seemingly unlikely friendship between Wilmington, Delaware Quaker Thomas Garrett and the indomitable Harriet Tubman as they collaborated to safely guide Freedom Seekers on the Underground Railroad. 



Ashley B. Cloud has proudly served the Quaker Hill Historic Preservation Foundation since 2014 helping to expand its education, collaboration, and community efforts to preserve the rich history of the Quaker Hill Historic District located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, Delaware. A graduate of Wake Forest University, her early career was spent in the financial sector with MBNA and JPMorgan Chase. Becoming a mother of two wonderful daughters shifted her focus to the nonprofit world, allowing her to leverage all of her skills.
