Friends Forever Europe

In 2010, Friends Forever International opened its sister organization in Belfast, Northern Ireland, focusing on re-engaging graduates from our Northern Ireland program and coordinating our existing partnerships in the region.  

The mission of our European branch is as follows:

  • To re-engage the over 1,500 graduates of our Northern Ireland program with our current programs and volunteer opportunities across the region. Our Alumni Movement is geared toward reconnecting alumni, providing mentoring to younger FFI participants, and leveraging their personal and professional skills to lead service projects both large and small that unite all Northern Irish communities (gender, ethnicity, age, religion, etc.).​

  • To continue our innovative programs in the communities we currently work with and target new ones that can benefit from our work.​

  • To raise our profile and create opportunities for individuals, foundations, and businesses interested in a stable Northern Ireland to support our mission.

Friends Forever Europe Local Giving

World Peace...Grown Locally

FFE's principal purpose is to promote cross-community work through youth-focused programming.  Youth participants and adult educators from all over Northern Ireland are the direct beneficiaries of FFI's work. 

Our impact on the community

Each year we directly serve 40 cross-community youth in our intense leadership program. However, these 40 youth, in turn, impact hundreds more with volunteer projects that focus on all members of society. Your support will assist in these projects!

Board Member

Josh Hall

Josh is a graduate of our Northern Ireland Program. In the summer of 2008, Josh spent two weeks at our host community in New England, where he learned to look beyond exterior appearances and get to know people across cultural boundaries. After returning to Northern Ireland, Josh continued to expand his worldview through volunteering and college.

Friends Forever International chose to award Josh with the 2017 Robert Raiche Award for his commitment to making the world a more welcoming place and for demonstrating continual willingness to learn and teach others. As part of his Fellowship, Josh will be interned at the FFI Headquarters in Durham, NH. During this time, Josh met with local community members and assisted with program development.

In April 2018, Josh participated in the first-ever Alumni-Training Program which took place in New Orleans. Since returning home from this program, Josh has continued to work alongside other alumni of our Northern Ireland program to build the FFI alumni movement in Europe.
