International Visitor Leadership Program

Global Ties Miami partners with the U.S. Department of State to implement the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), its premier professional exchange program. Through short-term visits to the United States, Miami is a unique American hub to experience firsthand political, economic, social, and cultural life.


Shaped by our vibrant and diverse citizens, we carefully design exchanges that connect the best of Miami’s/South Florida’s professional community with the world’s emerging leaders. Our work supports U.S. foreign policy goals by enhancing mutual understanding between the United States and other nations.

In 60+ years we have hosted countless leaders from across the globe, and the map above offers a glimpse into the expansive network Global Ties Miami has facilitated only over a 4-year period. Hover your cursor over the circular symbols to discover where these emerging leaders travel from!

This is a program of the U.S. Department of State, administered by Global Ties Miami.​
