Volunteerism and Civic Action
April 25 - April 30
International visitors from Bahrain, Barbados, Israel, Malaysia, Nepal, Poland, Tunisia and Vietnam will travel to Cleveland to examine the impact of volunteerism in the U.S. and the role that social media plays in the volunteer efforts. Visitors will engage with several volunteer-based organizations addressing the needs for underserved groups, homelessness, and youth outreach. Visitors will also give back to the community through participation in a volunteer activity.
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.
