Welcome to the CEO Friendship Force International Jeremi Snook

The Friendship Force of the Sunshine Coast has been operation for 30 years and we have 51 members who are mostly retirees with a keen interest in travel and learning through an in-depth experience of living with people of diverse cultures.

The function of Friendship Force clubs all over the world is to home host members from other clubs as a primary way to develop closer understanding of cultural differences and to grow friendships across the world.

There are 24 clubs in Australia and 360 Friendship Force clubs across 60 countries so it is a very large extensive organisation.

The headquarters of Friendship Force International (FFI) is in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and the CEO FFI, Jeremi Snook, was visiting the Sunshine Coast with his family for four nights (29 Feb to 3 March) following the Australian Friendship Force Conference in Newcastle.

Fourteen of our members attended the conference and renewed old friendships.

We are now about to host 13 members from Long Island, USA, for a week of organised social activities showcasing the beautiful aspects of the Sunshine Coast.

Unfortunately, our journey to Japan and South Korea to begin in April has been cancelled due to concerns about the coronavirus.

For further information about Friendship Force or joining us during our welcome of Long Island, please visit friendshipforcesunshinecoast.org.au
