With over 225,000 International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) alumni, each has a story to tell and has become a “face” of exchange, the theme of our 80th anniversary celebration. On December 9th, the #FacesOfExchange initiative will come to a close with a virtual reception and storytelling workshop tilted, “My IVLP Moment.”
Join us to hear from IVLP alumni and our global IVLP network! Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and IVLP alumnus will share a special video message.
We will be joined by StoryCenter for a storytelling workshop where you will learn new techniques to develop your IVLP moment and create a story that highlights how the IVLP has impacted you.
You can also participate on social media by sharing your own self-recorded 2-4 minute video telling your own personal IVLP story with #MyIVLPMoment!
