Friends Institute was founded as the Friends Institute for Young Men, in 1880, in Philadelphia as a reading room, lecture, and meeting room suitable for young men who were members of the Religious Society of Friends. It had approximately 200 founding members. Women were allowed to use the reading room, and by 1885 the name should be changed to Friends Institute.
Today the organization exists as a granting group through Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, supporting the ministry of Quakers ages 18 - 35 years.
