This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for five civic activists and community leaders from Georgia and their U.S. State Dept. liaison, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Youth Leadership & Engagement in the United States.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will help the visitors develop a better understanding of how to introduce programs that promote civic responsibility and assist minority youth in marginalized communities to work for social, economic and political empowerment.
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.
