What they say about FAF

“Thank you for all of your help in getting our trip planned and accomplished. It was a wonderful experience for us, and the concert venues and arrangements were the best we have ever had.”

– Dr. Annabell Zikmund, University of Nebraska at Kearney, June 2000

“The Movement Laboratory Youth Ensembles’ “Goodwill thru Dance Program” has traveled with FAF for over 20 years. Ten years ago we traveled to Italy and developed artistic relationships and personalized cultural exchanges. After years of communication we were able to renew these connections with young artists / students and professional colleagues. We are exploring an exchange for a company to come to the USA as our guest in 2008. Partners in Padua, Rome and Florence hosted our dancers with great enthusiasm and respect. Thanks FAF for helping Judy Williams Henry and her Movement Laboratory Youth Ensemble represent the USA as “Children of Hope; Children of Peace”. We will continue to create, illuminate and teach peace.”

– Judy Williams Henry, Founding Artistic Director, Movement Laboratory, July 2007

“The trip was a wonderful success. Our guides were excellent; we got to sing at the Vatican for a Mass in St. Peter’s and it was wonderful. The educational tours were excellent and the guides for them were well organized. The final dinner was excellent. Thank you for your work; it was good working with you again.”

– Ellen Bowen, Grosse Point High School to Italy

It is a great pleasure to send greetings to the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation’s Youth Delegates. I can’t thank you enough for demonstrating your commitment to making a difference, and I encourage each of you to continue to give back to others. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I thank you for your terrific work. I commend everyone involved with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation. Please accept my best wishes for much continued success. Keep up the good work!”

What's New

2016 Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations:  The 2016 Summer Youth Assembly took place on August  10-12 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Corresponding with International Youth Day and less than a year after the Sustainable Development Goals were established, the three-day conference consisted of panels and workshops pertaining to the 17 goals. The conference culminated in the development of the 2016 Summer Youth Assembly Resolution, a collaborative effort among all youth delegates present and a demonstration of their commitment to sustainable development.

A look back at the 2016 Summer Youth Assembly can be found HERE.
