Change the way you see the world.
Our club is just one of some 360 similar clubs located in more than 60 countries all over the world. We are a nonprofit corporation committed to furthering world peace by forming international friendships. Members travel in small groups as "Good Will Ambassadors" to one or two host cities on what is called an exchange.

While on an exchange, members are home hosted individually or in pairs for a week in each city by members of the receiving Friendship Force club. It's a unique, if not rare, opportunity to share in the lives of a family and to learn of their culture. It's a lot more than just sharing bed and board. Members sometimes find themselves attending a wedding, visiting a school, or even observing a cremation. They may be taken to a spa in Japan, an underground salt cathedral in Colombia, or visit an ice palace in Sweden. You just never know...

In turn, our club annually hosts exchanges from other countries. In addition to hosting ambassadors in our homes, we usually plan a party or two and several all day group outings to the Redwoods, Gold Country, Lake Tahoe, or, perhaps, San Francisco.                              

Our club started in 1988 with an exchange to Bogota, Colombia. Since then some of the countries we have had exchanges with, both outbound and inbound, include Australia, Brazil, Chile, England, Germany, Japan, Italy, Kyrgystan, New Zealand, Peru, Poland and Turkey.

Our members come not just from Sacramento but also from nearby communities such as Folsom, Carmichael, Roseville, Fair Oaks, Orangevale, and beyond.

It may sound like we are a travel club, but we are not. We are a lot more. We are looking for others who want to make foreign friends to better understand their culture, lifestyle and values. If this sounds interesting to you, we want to hear from you. To check us out better or to become a member, contact us.
