This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for five humanitarian leaders from Armenia and their U.S. State Dept. interpreters, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Integrating the Needs of Refugees into Social Policy.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide community leaders an opportunity to learn how institutions – social service agencies, schools, medical clinics, etc. – integrate the needs of refugee and migrants into their work, and how they partner with nonprofit groups to meet local needs.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
