Visitors from Guinea-Bissau, Malawi, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and Yemen are coming to Cleveland to examine the impact of volunteerism in U.S. communities and how volunteers are inspired to help foster a culture of service, civic involvement and responsibility. By sharing best practices, and opportunities to volunteer, participants will better understand the importance of volunteerism in the United States.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 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.
