Welcome to Friendship Force of Dayton!

Friendship Force International is a global, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural understanding and citizen diplomacy, in which people can cross cultural boundaries to connect on a personal level.  The goal, via international and domestic homestays, is to develop friendships through these personal contacts which will ultimately help to build a more peaceful world.

FFI brings diverse people together into one another’s cultures and even homes in more than 60 countries, creating one-of-a-kind experiences not available to regular tourists.  Although members explore new destinations, Friendship Force is not a travel club; our members travel or host with the goal of mutual understanding and friendship. 

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to learn more about the organization and its activities by viewing the video provided: Now More Than Ever

Celebrating 45 Years!
