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.


       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.

"Denver Mob Tour"


Tom Hackett

Smaldone: The Untold Story of an American Crime Family: Dick Kreck:  9781555917067: Amazon.com: Books

Tom Hackett operates a popular and exciting bus tour through North Denver’s ‘Little Italy’ area that includes lunch at Gaetano’s, one of the haunts of the most notorious mobsters in Denver.  He has developed a zoom presentation about these crime families and their lives to be presented at our February 12th, 2021 meeting.

Geatano's Restaurant was the headquarters of the Smaldone Crime Family. The bugging of the restaurant by law enforcement, which was thought to be highly illegal, was dubbed "Operation Miami".  Attend our meeting for more fun stories about the history of mobsters in Denver. 

And, when social distancing is a distant memory, we should all organize to take his bus tour riding through ‘Little Italy’ to see these landmarks in person and have lunch at Gaetano’s which includes a tour of the haunted basement.
