Discover A New Way To Travel

Through the powerful tool of Home Hospitality the Friendship Force introduces people at the personal level. Living under one roof for 5 to 7 days, sharing meals and exchanging ideas results in new friendships. Staying in a private home and sharing the routines of daily life changes you from a tourist to a temporary resident as you gain a profound understanding of another culture.

Traveling the Friendship Force way gets you off the tourist track and straight into real life. Join an exchange that originates in your hometown or select from a wide range of opportunities on our international website –

Here are a few examples:

  • Experience the richness of Asian culture in a Japanese home
  • Explore Lethbridge, Alberta Canada- Fort Whoop-up and buffalo hunting
  • Environmentally Friendly – Eco-Exchange to Costa Rica!
  • Ride a camel across the dunes & spend a night under the stars in Morocco

Travel to your destination independently or with a small group led by a volunteer leader called an Exchange Director. Learn about the customs and history of the host country during cultural workshops. Get to know your hosts and become a part of the family and their community as an insider and personal guest, not as a tourist. Wander the neighborhoods, visit historic sites, and share in everyday activities. Return home with a deeper understanding of another culture and new friendships that will last a lifetime!

One Friendship Force exchange will permanently change the way you read and watch the news. Distant places are no longer vague dots on the map. They are now the home of your new friends.
