In September of 2018, in partnership with Open World Leadership Center and FHI 360, Friends Forever International hosted its first delegation from the Open World Leadership Center, a legislative branch agency.


Prior to their arrival at the FFI Peace Campus, delegates complete an orientation in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill and have the opportunity to meet with members of Congress.


Once in Durham, delegates collaborate on best practices for youth work. Delegates will meet state political leaders and local community leaders. Additional activities include a tailored version of the FFI Leadership Program.
