FFI University Programs
FFI now works with university staff and students to provide bespoke programs based on our course library. We can work with classes, teams, and clubs to design one-day team-building and volunteer opportunities to months-long leadership and cultural competence building programs that include a trip to Northern Ireland, Belize, Israel, or Cyprus.
For example, in 2019, FFI collaborated with the University of New Hampshire Men’s Hockey team to create a program spanning two continents and several months. It involved instruction on the conflict in Northern Ireland, volunteering with youth from sectarian Belfast here in the states and over in Northern Ireland, and core workshops on identity.

Program Coordinator Position
The Program Coordinator is a volunteer position available for 2-week sessions during programs, usually in July and October. This person handles logistics for a team during their stay in the US, including driving the van, living with the team, and acting as a liaison to the community. Learn more below!
FFI offers rolling internships to college students in their junior and senior years. Interns often take on research projects, organizational projects, and small jobs around the office, but we are always open to your thoughts about what you want to achieve! We’d love to develop a video/film internship as well as a sustainable design internship. Hours are flexible, and we can work with you both virtually and in-person at our Durham, NH campus.
ESL Project with University Students
Living the Language
In 2013 and 2014, FFI partnered with UNH volunteers to work with Arab-Israeli young people, helping them improve their English language skills to give them more opportunities for cross-cultural communication.
