Sports Visitor Program
The Sports Visitor Program brings youth athletes, coaches, and administrators from around the world to the United States for sports-based-exchanges that enhance cross-cultural understanding and open avenues of dialogue between individuals and nations.
The Sports Visitor Program utilizes the global passion for sports to engage under-served populations and promote key foreign policy objectives such as equality and inclusion.
The Sports Visitor Program is implemented through a cooperative agreement with FHI 360. Learn more about the program at www.sportsvisitor.org.
A 2020 evaluation of the Sports Visitor Program by ECA’s Evaluation Division found that participants return from the United States with new skills, confidence, and an expansive worldview to posively influence their communities through sport.
