Friends Forever's principal purpose is to create a better world through youth-focused programming. Through volunteer service projects, intensive communication, and collaboration activities, Friends Forever inspires a new generation of youth leaders to be confident and empowered ambassadors for peace in their own families, schools and communities. Youth participants and adult educators from all over Northern Ireland, Israel, Palestine, Uganda, and Cyprus the direct beneficiaries of your gift.Why the community needs us
Too often people believe that there is no hope for the world. FFE demonstrates that everyone can play a role in making their world a better place. That instead of viewing young people as a problem to be solved in society, we should view them as the solution to problems in society.Our impact on the community
We work with over 100 youth from around the world each year, with 50 coming from Northern Ireland. We also work with Jewish and Palestinian Israelis, inner-city youth from the USA, and are launching a program in Cyprus in 2018. Since 1986 we have worked with over 1500 participants and are regarded as an innovative leader in the design and implementation of youth-led programming.
Friends Forever Europe is a partner with youth orgs in Belfast & Portadown. We deliver a year long program of leadership development for these partners & their young people. We have no staff & are relying on volunteers to take FFE to next level.
