Transforming Lives, One Connection at a Time: The Story of Global Ties KC and the 2024 Heartland Pop Up 

Join us in celebrating 70 years of fostering global ideas and partnerships. Your sponsorship at the 2024 Heartland Pop-Up not only showcases your commitment to a globally connected future but also propels Kansas City as a pivotal launchpad for international change. Be part of this vibrant evening of networking, live music, and impactful stories. Together, let’s shape a more understanding and equitable world.
In the heart of America, Kansas City emerges not just as a city but as a beacon of global engagement and understanding. For 70 years, Global Ties KC has been at the forefront of citizen diplomacy, fostering connections that transcend borders and cultures. Our mission is simple yet profound: to promote mutual peace and understanding worldwide. The impact? Immeasurable, yet quantifiable in the lives we’ve touched, the leaders we’ve nurtured, and the communities we’ve transformed.
The Power of Connection
Consider the story of Bela Sullivan (our event chair, pictured right), as a testament to the transformative power of Global Ties KC. Starting as a Youth Diplomat and evolving into a Communications Intern, Bela’s journey with us has been nothing short of remarkable. Her engagement in international advocacy and her subsequent achievements, including a pivotal role at the United Nations, underscore the profound impact of our programs. Bela’s story is just one of many, each unique yet united by a common thread: the life-changing influence of global engagement.
By the Numbers
  • Over 400 Emerging International Leaders are brought in each year to meet with their professional counterparts, fostering global ideas and partnerships.
  • A Nine-Month Real World Program (Global Ties KC Youth Diplomat Institute) that equips teens in Kansas and Missouri with the tools necessary for success in a global society.
