Friends Peace Teams is a network of individuals and organizations dedicated to practicing and promoting Quaker Peacemaking philosopies and methods. The FPT family includes partners, working group members, active yearly meeting members, donors, volunteers, staff, and others.
Friends Peace Teams supports the work of regional initiatives, which conduct activities in their areas of operation with local and international partners. The Initiatives provide speakers, employ volunteers and staff, recruit workcampers, and are led by "Working Groups".
The work of the iniatives is supported by the Council, a "body of Friends" comprised of representatives appointed by the Working Groups and Quaker Yearly Meetings, co-opted members, staff and volunteers. The Council has officers, staff and committees to carry out administrative work for the organization and iniatives.
A three-prong focus—field initiatives, yearly meeting relations and organizational support—is maintained through consistent attention in conference calls and face-to-face gatherings.
