Our Services

The doors of International Pen Friends are open to people of all ages, male and female, married and single. Our youngest member is eight years old. Our oldest member was born in 1920. To each of you we can bring friendship through the English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian languages. IPF members are people of every creed and colour coming from all walks of life all over the world.

It is possible to join IPF individually, with a friend or as part of a school class or youth group. In every instance, each member is provided with a personal list of penfriends who have been individually matched according to age group, hobbies and interests. Each member´s name is also given to other members of the club.

Our services have been designed with great care and with special consideration for young people and Senior Citizens (over 60 years). A comprehensive programme is available for Teachers, School Classes, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts and all Youth Groups aged 10-17 years.
