Bringing the world to you

We are improving global understanding by connecting international leaders and their American counterparts in Kansas and Western Missouri. This spring, you have the opportunity to share in this mission in a variety of ways. Through hosting, events, and supporting or taking part in our newly launched Youth Diplomats program.

Global Ties KC promotes citizen diplomacy and shapes foreign affairs by facilitating person-person contact. This is done through programs which bring prominent international leaders, professionals, and students to the U.S. Our staff is responsible for creating connections between these delegates and the greater Kansas City community. Through professional meetings, school visits, home hospitality, and much more, we connect you to the world. Get involved today through hosting, attending events, sharing your experience, or volunteering in the office.

Citizen Diplomacy: The Concept that every global citizen has the right, even the responsibility, to engage across cultures and create shared understanding through meaningful person-to-person interactions.


Community support and contributions allow Global Ties KC to impact foreign affairs and showcase the best of Kansas City to the world. Help us build relationships around the globe and coordinate each program we bring to you.
