What they say about FAF

“2010 marks a decade of our work with Friendship Ambassadors, an infinitely imaginative, flexible, hard-working and communicative organization dedicated to peace through cultural exchange. Thanks to the truly global perspective and expertise of the FAF staff and administration, my colleagues and I at West Virginia Wesleyan College have been able to develop a meaningful curriculum abroad during the past ten years. For any project involving the education of young people abroad in the 21st century we can certainly recommend without reservation the skill, breadth of vision, and ever evolving, comprehensive contacts of Friendship Ambassadors.”

- Dr. Devon McNamara, Professor of English, West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon, West Virginia 2010

“I just wanted to let you know that the kids got back safely, happily. They all had really positive things to say about the trip. I thank you for putting this trip together and especially from an educational standpoint the kids really had an amazing experience. Thanks.”

- Jennifer Bell, Director of Foreign Languages, Nyack High School, February 2005

“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 Youth Assembly 2005 was a successful and engaging event and the initiative that your organization put forth was much appreciated. Please accept this as an expression of WFUNA’s wishes for even deeper and continued cooperation with FAF in the future.”

- Incia Zaffar, World Federation of United Nations Associations
