Immersion Programs

Immersion: Welcome

All FFI Immersion Programs include a cross-cultural trip highly tailored to the team's and individuals' interests and goals. These in-depth programs are our most comprehensive and based on our innovative curriculum and philosophy. Every program we develop includes our custom-made curriculum that relies on each component of our RECIPE to ensure that the young people we serve gain a wide range of skills - no two Immersion Programs are the same. Programs are spread out in three distinct phases (Team Building, Skill Building, and Community Building, described below), with home-based & virtual sessions before and after the cross-cultural trip. Each Immersion Program culminates with a participant-designed community action project that addresses a need in their home communities.


Organizations, schools, and/or individuals must apply to participate in an Immersion Program. Current Immersion Program locations include the United States (New Hampshire), Northern Ireland (Annalong), and Belize (Boom Creek).

Team Building Phase

During the first phase, participants develop their team identity and build a foundation for the rest of their program. Using FFI’s methodologies, they set expectations and goals, practice working together, and make collaborative decisions. All participants attend a two-day preparation seminar before they travel where the team creates their team name, logo, and slogan based on their shared values. 

FFI staff create Individual Leadership Plans (ILPs) for each participant using our multi-tiered analysis. This analysis informs the next steps: planning a tailored program, preparing and training team leadership and alumni, and customizing curriculum and program materials.
