FFI | Credit-Bearing Programs

Credit-Bearing Programs: Welcome

Current Application Deadline - May 30th!

FFI now offers Credit-Bearing Programs where New Hampshire students can participate in a leadership-based program while earning high school credits. This innovative program allows for the delivery of content to continue outside of the classroom through real-world, hands-on learning experiences. 

Check out three exciting programs with open applications! FFI is currently recruiting for programs that would allow any New Hampshire high school student to gain credits that will transfer over to their school or home school in multiple different content areas. These programs are residential, overnight programs that will be held at the FFI campus in Durham, NH with 6-8 virtual meetings beforehand. 

Applicants can apply to multiple program options.

These programs are 100% free of cost to the participant regardless of financial need! FFI coveres all program costs including room and board.

Pushing the Boundaries of Education

Friends Forever International (FFI) is excited to expand educational opportunities to New Hampshire students through the NHDOE Learn Everywhere Initiative. This program allows for the delivery of content to continue outside of the classroom through real-world, hands-on, learning experiences.

In June of 2022, FFI was approved for 74 courses totaling 37 credits in 8 content areas. FFI will deliver this curriculum and programming to meet the academic needs of students while offering them opportunities that wouldn't normally be accessible through a traditional classroom setting. All programming is done by incorporating our FFI RECIPE and integrating the values of Resilience, Empathy, Communication, Impact, Playfulness, and Effort into everything we do.

There is a 10-person capacity for these programs.


Programs Abroad

FFI offers experiential trips to our campus in Northern Ireland that can be organized through a partnering school or organization.
