BRINGING THE WORLD TO AUSTIN
The U.S. Department of State International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is a valuable asset for American Diplomacy and GlobalAustin is proud to bring it to Austin. The participants in this program are given an opportunity to participate and be provided in depth information on a wide variety of topics, enjoy local hospitality, and experience cultural enrichment. GlobalAustin works with the U.S. Department of State and program agencies in Washington, D.C. to create professional and personal opportunities for international leaders and opinion makers to meet and exchange ideas with American citizens.
These guests are distinguished leaders or emerging leaders from various countries around the world. Over 194 current world politicians have participated in the International Visitor Leadership Programs. GlobalAustin has an extensive outreach program for community involvement in visitor programming and has a broad spectrum of community resources. We arrange for these international visitors to meet and share ideas with local leaders in both the private and public sector. In addition, we arrange for home hospitality. As a result of these meetings, enduring personal and professional relationships are formed among the future leaders of the world. Our goal is to develop a more internationally competent citizenry through quality programs for international visitors.
