The Journey Experience
As of 2017 Friendship Force 'Exchanges' are known as 'Journeys'. Members leading 'Inbound Journeys' (Clubs visiting Ottawa) are now
Host Coordinators (HC) and those leading Outbound Journeys (FF Ottawa visiting clubs) are Ambassador Coordinators (AC). Treasurers
for Journeys are called Host Treasurers (HT) or Ambassador Treasurers (AT).

Journeys are the core activity of Friendship Force, and an extensive guide to current journeys, joining them and participating
in them is presented here for the information of both current and new members.
As journeys are an on-going activity, this page should
be consulted on a regular basis.
The following BUTTONS provide information for members, current and new, on the current roster of
journeys, as well as information on signing up for journeys and activities around them.

Here on Red Square
A group of Australian and two American clubs sought a winter experience in Canada. This Inbound Exchange in February, 2011, was a
collaboration between FFOttawa and our sister French Language Club, Force de l’Amité. Here Hosts and Ambassadors join in a Sleigh
Ride at Fulton’s Maple Farm.
As FFO is a large club, there are usually four Outbound and four Inbound journeys each year, but it is possible to join under-subscribed
journeys from other clubs or journeys organized by Friendship Force International. These widen the travel experience a great
deal. A guide to journeys organized through Friendship Force International can be found at http://www2.thefriendshipforce.org/catalog/ffi_listonly.aspx.
Canadian Friendship Force Clubs have a Journey Website to help fill under-subscribed journeys. The Web address is: www.canffex.ca.
The BUTTONS also provide information about current policies on journeys, as well as a TOOLBOX for the Journey Coordinators of both Outbound and Inbound journeys.
