Engaging the world through sports.
The Sports Visitor and Sports Envoy programs enhance cross-cultural understanding and open avenues of dialogue between individuals and nations. An initiative of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, implemented through a cooperative agreement with FHI 360, the programs utilize the power of sports exchanges to create a foundation of trust needed to build a more stable, secure, and prosperous world.
