What We Do
Citizen Diplomacy International helps Philadelphians like you forge personal connections with visitors from abroad.
Together, through person-to-person experiences, we showcase the best of Philadelphia, shaping and elevating the reputation of our city and our country around the globe. Why? Because genuine cross-cultural conversations and relationships are one of the best ways to overcome the challenges facing our world.
Engaging What Matters
Every year, we connect 700 international guests with 2,250 volunteer Citizen Diplomats—Philadelphians who are driven by a curiosity about the world. From high school and university exchanges to homestays and office visits, our prestigious initiatives foster civic engagement on an individual level. These diplomatic interactions promote mutual respect and understanding that leads to a more civil, peaceful, and prosperous world.
Join us in creating a more peaceful, prosperous world, one conversation at a time. Become a member to receive first priority for new opportunities and events. Or make a donation to empower Philadelphia’s citizen diplomats.
