We make a difference locally, nationally, and internationally.
The effect of the programs this nationwide network puts into action reaches far and wide. Numerous Heads of State and Chiefs of Government around the world participated in the IVLP earlier in their careers. The impact of the NCIV network is also powerfully close to home. Personal friendships are made, business relationships are formed, and children learn about the world in a whole new way when they meet visitors from the other side of the globe.
The links in the menu above contain documents demonstrating the economic, educational, and cultural impact of the NCIV network. You can find Presidential Letters commending NCIV members along with academic papers and government summaries on the IVLP.
At the Santa Fe Council on International Relations, we have great access to the mayor, tribal leaders and state legislators. Local program officer accompany each IVLP; Home Hospitality dinners and receptions are arranged. We schedule visits to Native American Pueblos and a very diverse group of religious leaders.
