Our purpose is to be a multi-cultural group that promotes peace and friendship in the world by building global good will through personal friendships and exchanges (now called Journeys).

Our mission is building world understanding through personal friendships.

Our vision is to be an outstanding model as a diverse and actively involved Friendship Force club representing Dallas, Texas to the world.

Our History

Friendship Force Dallas is one of several hundred Friendship Force clubs located throughout the world. We host citizen Ambassodors from clubs in other countries and from the United States and visit clubs around the world.

The Dallas club was established in 1994 as part of the Friendship Force International program, founded in 1977 with about 370 clubs in over 60 countries and growing. Dallas membership is now at 83 members from all walks of life - professionals, seniors, singles, couples, families; we welcome anyone who wants to meet new friends at home and abroad.
