This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for four community advocates and officials from Spain exploring Empowering Communities to Prevent Radicalization Among Youth.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide participants with a deeper understanding of how the U.S. addresses issues of identity-building, tolerance, civic participation, and radicalization prevention as well as its approach to integrating marginalized populations.
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.
