At PTPI, we believe that even though we may not have the ability to solve every problem in our world, we have the power to make a difference by seeking to make friends and by understanding each other. It is through person-to-person connections and cross-cultural exchange that we can achieve true friendship and create positive change. By developing connections between everyday citizens, we provide opportunities for them to learn from each other and become equipped to lead and enrich their communities. Join us today and become a part of a global movement that is committed to building bridges of friendship and promoting international understanding.
Start your own chapter where you live and get involved in supporting your community through our growing, Global Chapter Network.
To operate effectively, we rely on a range of centralized services that support our community. These services are funded by annual dues, which are paid each March. Dues vary depending on membership type: community chapters pay 5euro per person (or more if they can), while Youth chapters are not expected to donate financially. At-large members who aren’t connected to a chapter can make a direct payment of 10euro. All payments are made to our administration account, and all funds are used to operate our International NGO – no salaries are paid with these funds.
By paying dues, you help ensure that our community has access to the resources and support they need to thrive. To make your payment and receive a receipt, simply visit our shop and choose the option that’s right for you. Thank you for your support!
