IVLP Gold Stars – Amine Zariat
November 25, 2017 - November 29, 2017
CCWA is honored to be welcoming an International Visitor Leadership Program “Gold Star”, Amine Zariat. Mr. Zariat is a former IVLP participant who is on an “Alumni Connecting the World” tour of the U.S. As the founder of the Association TIBU Maroc, he created Morocco’s first basketball academy in 2013; a Casablanca-based school that provides training in sports, English, and leadership to marginalized youth. While in Cleveland, Mr. Zariat will connect with civil society startups and well-established support organizations for youth to gain insights on programming, fundraising methods, and capacity building that will be used to strengthen his mission in Morocco.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
