Represent a Yearly Meeting

Join the Friends Peace Teams Council

Offer your skills in clerking, recording, legal work, finance, fundraising, communications, coordinating and so forth. The council meets on a monthly conference call and annual meeting. It also produces a PeaceQuest conference once a year, following the face-to-face meeting. 

Join a Working Group

We seek volunteers to meet monthly on a conference call and do administrative tasks such as recording minutes, in-reach and outreach, publicity, accounting, fundraising, translation, and video documentation. Most of these tasks do not involve travel and can be done from anywhere.  

Join the Power of Goodness

We seek writers of new stories, translators of existing stories, artists to solicit children’s illustrations, readers to review submissions, teachers and school counselors to develop programs, and facilitators to conduct short, thematic workshops.  

Attend an International Training

Sign up for email news from AGLI, AWP or PLA to receive notices on upcoming international peace training opportunities.

Offer Extended Service

Initiatives match volunteer skills to partner needs. FPT typically arranges room and board with a local family or other local accommodation. Volunteers are expected to raise funds to cover their own transportation and personal expenses for the duration of their stay.
