As members of the Greenheart community, we’ve seen firsthand how cultural exchange enables personal and professional growth, not only for exchange participants themselves but also for their hosts and colleagues. We know that the cross-cultural skills, lasting friendships, and professional collaborations that develop through cultural exchange empower us as individuals and build a strong foundation for peace. Greenheart is committed to communicating the diverse benefits of cultural exchange to everyday Americans and to our representatives on Capitol Hill. We want more Americans to understand how exchange programs that bring international students, interns, trainees, and teachers to the United States foster mutual understanding, support American national security and contribute significantly to the success of American students and professionals.
Greenheart’s Commitment to Advocacy in 2024
Greenheart continues to work with our membership association, the Alliance for International Exchange, to ask our congressional representation and leadership to show bipartisan support of BridgeUSA programs. You can read more about the great work done in 2023 here.
As 2024 is a presidential election year, we plan to work with the Alliance and our stakeholders to be prepared for any outcome. Additionally, we will work with the Alliance on their goals to validate and communicate their impact and strengthen our position in the political landscape. Greenheart is fortunate to have Daniel Ebert serve as a board member on the Alliance, so we are in a unique position of insight and impact on the industry.
