Friends Forever International currently works with leaders from the Arava, Haifa, and greater Nazareth regions. Since 1997, 300 students have completed the FFI program. While we often work with schools and organizations that are interested in coexistence work, we have expanded to address a broader range of needs.
For our youth programs, we work with 8 Jewish and Palestinian-Israeli schools and are actively looking for more. We are currently seeking applicants for our new adult leadership teams. Applicants should be in the fields of education, the arts, and social sciences.
“We realized we all like to eat the same food, we all like the same games, and we all want peace.”

Our Program Values
FFI runs a variety of programs that follow our core values of Resilience, Empathy, Communication, Impact, Playfulness, and Effort (our RECIPE). We incorporate healthy living guidelines for all activities, including our participants being technology free during the program. Our programs operate on a rolling basis and can be started at any time. All programs are highly tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of the leaders and participants.
All our programs are open to teams of adults not just students! We have experience with groups of adults looking for professional development as well as groups working towards personal goals.
