The program will feature opening remarks by Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Marie Royce and special video remarks from former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and IVLP alumnus Tony Blair. IVLP alumni from around the world, U.S. nonprofit partners, and representatives from Congressional offices will join the virtual reception.

For the past 80 years, the IVLP has connected current and emerging leaders from around the world to the United States through short-term exchanges. With over 225,000 alumni, the program continues to build vital linkages that benefit both the U.S. and IVLP participants’ home countries.
