Experience Different Views.  Discover Common Ground.


Welcome New Members!

Another outstanding New Member Orientation led by Jodi V. ensured our newest
members are 'in the know' about Friendship Force International and FF of Sacramento.  Members jumped right in and volunteered to help with the Oktoberfest, and both
the Montreal and Gifu inbound.  Great job everyone!!

Rick Steves' Highlights Friendship Force 

'Friendship Force (www.friendshipforce.org): This nonprofit focuses on person-to-person exchanges, with locals welcoming travelers into their homes. Each one- to three-week program includes fun experiences, such as learning to make traditional lavash bread in Armenia, visiting historic Brazilian fishing villages or tobogganing on sand hills in Australia’s Hunter Valley.'  Read the article here.
