Excerpted from Citizen Diplomacy International:
A deep love of learning is at the heart of international exchange. That's why Philadelphia teachers are so important to Sister Cities!
International students come to Philadelphia to study, attend camps, take part in high school exchanges and enroll in college and other certificate programs. Did you know that, in 2018, Pennsylvania had 51,382 international college students?
In July 2018, Citizen Diplomat Jackie McCafferty (pictured below) welcomed 20 students from our Sister City Incheon, South Korea through Temple University’s Intensive English Language Summer Program. Jackie helps young people to improve their English so they can succeed in their studies and make deeper connections with peers.
