This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for three educators and academic advocates from Georgia and their U.S. State Dept. interpreters, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Countering Violent Extremism in Youth.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will help the visitors examine how different religious organizations work together to fight religious and ethnic intolerance, extremist ideologies, and other common concerns.
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.
