Northern Nevada International Center

"I have long believed, as have many before me, that peaceful relations between nations requires understanding and mutual respect between individuals. If only people will get together, then so eventually will nations. "            

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, 34th President of the United States

The concept of citizen diplomacy is strongly embedded in the work of the Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC).  For over three decades, our organization has hosted thousands of visitors from almost every corner of the globe.   At its core, the most important aspect of our work involves members of our community who host visiting delegations in their homes and at their places of work, beginning a dialogue that often lasts for years.  This makes our volunteers the most valuable resource to combat stereotypes that exist both on the sides of the visitors and also on our side.  Take a look at the many opportunities that exist at the Northern Nevada International Center and learn how you can become a citizen diplomat.

Home host and visitors

Hosting international visitors in your home or work offers an opportunity to learn how others think about the world, about us and about current affairs.  It's better than turning on CNN because it offers insights on things we've perhaps never even thought of.  In other words, hosting broadens our horizon.
