Welcome to our Friends and Flags  Community!


If the motion of a butterfly's wing has the power to create, a storm the size of a hurricane in another state, then certainly collaboration between children of every race, has the potential to make our world, a much better place. 

Karen Eini, Friends and Flags Project Director

What is Friends and Flags?  Friends and Flags is a collaborative learning project which promotes multicultural awareness by connecting classrooms around the world in international learning clusters. This award winning educational  initiative fosters tolerance, mutual respect and the joy of giving. Our mission is the empowerment  of a generation of compassionate and responsible global citizens, young leaders well prepared for the dynamics of the modern world. Who can participate?       Everyone can! The project is available for all formal and informal educational organizations: Schools, Home Schools, Hospital Schools, Clubs, Youth Groups , and more.  Thousands of students from 50 countries  from  1st grade through 12th grade have collaborated with their peers  in  global  clusters of  2-6 countries each.
Cluster Collaboration: Participants interact with international classroom partners in a private  Friends and Flags Forum, by email and by sending  cultural packages to each member in their  team in the post.
