Civic Engagement
For 60 years Global Ties Miami, formerly the Miami Council for International Visitors (MCIV), has fostered global friendships and has shaped US foreign relations through the acts of citizen diplomats. As the official host of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program, our mission is to promote, sponsor and facilitate programs that provide people-to-people exchange between emerging foreign leaders in business, government and civil society and their South Florida peers. Our exchange programs have included: • Entrepreneurs from across Africa, Haiti, Spain & Kyrgyzstan • Engineers & environmentalists from Latin America • Park conservationists from India • Bankers & financiers from Turkmenistan and Guinea- Bissau • Disability rights advocates from Uzbekistan and Taiwan Through these carefully crafted peer-to-peer experiences, our foreign visitors form an intimate, first-hand understanding of the US, its people, its culture and its society. At Global Ties Miami we know that citizen diplomacy starts with a handshake and we hope this Give Miami Day you will lend us yours!
