Annual Citizen Diplomacy Celebration
We are continuously striving to provide the community with an opportunity to learn more about the importance of global citizenship on a local, national, and international level.
Although this year has brought many challenges, we have enjoyed the opportunity to work with our community & network to expand our virtual connections and are continuing to explore innovate ways of engaging internationally through our programs.
Therefore, we’re tackling the virtual world by introducing our very first online annual event. We are excited to be able to offer this event for free to all, so please be sure to mark your calendars and register early.
We aim to build international friendships, to facilitate the exchange of ideas, to foster cultural understanding, and to promote San Antonio as an international city.
San Antonio Council for International Visitors (SACIV) is a non-profit organization that arranges professional programming for emerging international leaders who have been selected by the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) to come to the United States. Hundreds of these international visitors come to San Antonio each year, providing opportunities to the community for fostering economic development and cross-cultural understanding. In addition to meeting with area professionals in their fields and exploring the local culture of San Antonio, international visitors are invited into the homes of SACIV members or hosted for meals or special excursions, giving them invaluable first-hand experience with everyday Americans.
