U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy
The U.S. Center strives to promote opportunities for all Americans to be citizen diplomats and strengthen the value and awareness of citizen involvement in international relations. In an era of increasing globalization, many develop their most lasting impressions through face-to-face encounters when people visit the United States or when Americans travel abroad. In this context, the ‘citizen diplomat’ is a powerful and influential force in defining the United States to the rest of the world.
The Center works to increase opportunities for Americans by supporting and promoting existing non-profit organizations and their programs that send individuals overseas or provide opportunities to engage the world at home.
