Friends Without A Border’s Young Professionals group, the New York Friends Council, is a group of professionals in the New York City-area dedicated to raising awareness, support, and increasing the network of Friends.
Members come from various different careers and professions, from accounting and law, to biomedical engineering, but all are passionate about helping children in Laos and Cambodia and advancing Friends’ mission among younger generations.
