The International Visitor Leadership Program is the US Department of State's premiere professional exchange program.
For 70 years, the IVLP has brought emerging leaders from far across the world to unite with their American counterparts on issues of global importance.
From heads of state and Nobel Prize winners to small-town doctors and community actors, international visitors serve their community and country at all levels.
The American people become citizen diplomats by opening up their homes and communities to thousands of international visitors every year.
By engaging directly with Americans in their offices, businesses, schools and homes, critics and skeptics become informed friends and partners.
The International Visitor Leadership Program connects people to one another and transcends political and cultural divides.
Join us in building a world of greater understanding and partnership.
