Diplomats-in-Residence: Each year, the Department of
State assigns Senior Foreign Service Officers to the position
of Diplomat in Residence (DIR) at certain colleges and universities
throughout the United States. The DIR program is central to
the effort to recruit the best and brightest to represent America's
rich diversity to the world. More at http://www.careers.state.gov/engage/dir.html.
Speakers Match is a program of Peace Corps' World Wise Schools (www.peacecorps.gov/wws) and can help to connect your classroom or organization to local returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCVs) speakers. These RPCVs can help audiences learn more about an RPCV's country of service and unique experiences while serving as a Volunteer. To locate a RPCV in your community, submit your registration on the World Wise Schools' website at: http://www.peacecorps.gov/wws/speakersmatch/. For further assistance with the Speakers Match program, send an email to email@example.com.
Department of State and other organizations sponsor programs which
bring international professionals to the U.S. Programs are coordinated
by international visitor councils across the country. If you are
interested in inviting international visitors into your classroom
or hosting them for a home-stay in a real American home, contact
your local affiliate of the National Council for International
Visitors. More at www.nciv.org.
A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Cultural Vistas has used career exploration to facilitate connections between Americans and international visitors for more than 60 years. Cultural Vistas is committed to its mission to enrich minds, advance global skills, build careers, and connect lives through international exchange.
