This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for 10 civil society leaders from Trinidad and Tobago exploring Countering Violent Extremism.
The delegation's program from Detroit, MI will familiarize themselves with a network of credible partners within the government and community in Trinidad and Tobago to counter violent extremism in the country and learn best practices from U.S. institutions and organizations.
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.
