NCIV’s mission is to promote excellence in citizen diplomacy – the concept that, in a vibrant democracy, the individual has the right, even the responsibility, to help shape U.S. foreign relations. Founded in 1961, NCIV is comprised of more than 90 community organizations throughout the country plus National Program Agencies such as Meridian International Center that serve participants in the U.S. Department of State International Visitor Leadership Program and other exchanges, building person-to-person relationships “one handshake at a time.” Each year more than 80,000 volunteers are involved in NCIV member activities.
