FFI Immersion Youth Programme (2021)

Friends Forever Europe

Friends Forever International - Europe

This is a free event
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 7th AUGUST 2021!!! A one-of-a-kind programme designed to develop bold and empathetic leaders (15-18 years old) from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This programme includes 18+ virtual sessions and a two-week trip to our Global Headquarters in New Hampshire, that will take place from October 23rd - November 6th. This programme will focus on conflict transformation (personal and community), public speaking, communication, and identity. ​It is one of the most challenging youth leadership programs in the country and emphasizes resilience, empathy, and action. Participants will develop concrete skills and the confidence that will help them unify the nation and transform the world into a better place.

FFI programmes incorporate our RECIPE and are adapted to fit the interests of the individuals within each and every group.

There are a variety of qualities we are looking for in applicants and we encourage all to apply. Please note, each applicant will complete a personal virtual interview with an FFI staff member as a way to develop this essential skill.


100% of the programme fees will be waived for all accepted applicants. Only 10 slots are available, and applicants from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are encouraged to apply!


The programme will be around five months in length and will be split into three phases:


Team Building - This phase will include virtual sessions that are 1-2 hours in length and twice a week.

Skill Building - This phase is the 10-day Immersion Trip at the FFI Campus in New Hampshire from October 23rd - November 6th.

Community Building - This phase will include virtual sessions that are once a week and a social action project that addresses a need in their communities.
