Our Priorities

The Global Ties U.S. Strategic Framework (2023-26) highlights four key priorities:  

  • Membership & Programs: Lead high-quality citizen diplomacy and international exchange activities and support a resilient network of member organizations to advance and deepen U.S. citizen engagement with the world.
  • Communication & Partnerships: Develop and elevate a compelling narrative about the relevance and impact of international exchange and citizen engagement as strategic assets of diplomacy.
  • Operational Sustainability: Establish an agile, efficient, and equitable internal operation that enables Global Ties U.S. to boost employee retention and satisfaction, improve program implementation, and build organizational stability to support our member organizations.
  • Financial Sustainability: Maintain and grow revenue streams to ensure an appropriate mix of funding to solidify Global Ties U.S.’ ability to meet our mission, and to support Global Ties U.S. members in meeting theirs.
