Collegiate Internationals

Fostering Cultural Exchange and Global Community

Collegiate Internationals, a Common-Agreed-Program (CAP) by the Committee on SDG 4&16 of the World Youth Group, serves as a platform for international students in New York City. Our initiative promotes cultural exchange and friendship, aiming to create a global community for a peaceful world. Notably, many world leaders were once international students, highlighting the importance of nurturing friendships and support. By fostering connections during and beyond their studies, Collegiate Internationals seeks to establish a foundation for bilateral and multilateral friendships and cooperation.

Cultural Exchange

Collegiate Internationals offers a rich tapestry of cultural exchange opportunities through events like 'The Diplomatic Forum', 'Welcome Internationals', and UN events etc... Participants can immerse themselves in diverse cultures, learn about customs, and gain a deeper understanding of global perspectives.

Networking and Friendship Building

The organization's focus on fostering strong bonds among international students extends beyond events. These connections go on to become lasting friendships that can span the globe. Building this network of friends from diverse backgrounds can be invaluable both personally and professionally.
