This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for five community activists from the Philippines looking into "Community Service and Civic Engagement among University Students".
While in Detroit, these leaders are interested in examining how educators (administrators and faculty), youth leaders, and activists work together in addressing social, economic, and political marginalization within their communities.
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.
