Initially, the organization was founded for the ostensible purpose of fostering goodwill and understanding between the Visitors and the peoples of Earth; however, it quickly evolved into a tool which the Visitors used to further undermine human society, by swaying the world's youth to their cause. It also served as a paramilitary force to augment the Visitor occupation armies. This organization was open to all young adults from ages 12 to 20 who gained first hand knowledge of the Visitors such as riding squad vehicles and even gain special tours of the Mothership.
Recruits to the organization were given uniforms to wear which were similar to those worn by the Visitors themselves, but colored dark brown instead of red. Eventually, Visitor Friends units were also issued laser rifles and pistols.
