Sister Cities Program
“To connect Nashvillians with people of the world, promoting peace through mutual understanding, respect and cooperation – one person, one community at a time.”

Founded in 1990, Sister Cities of Nashville (SCN) is a chapter of Sister Cities International, which is based in Washington D.C. SCN is a volunteer organization that connects Nashvillians with friends around the world through exchanges, cultural programs, and partnerships.

 
Travel and Hospitality
SCN connects people where they live. As citizen diplomats, members of SCN have opportunities to host friends from our partner cities and participate in delegation visits abroad.

Professional Exchanges
SCN connects people through professions and occupations. Through SCN, Nashvillians are able to experience their profession internationally by working with colleagues from other countries.

Student Exchanges
SCN connects young people and families. School exchanges through our city partnerships regularly bring groups of international students to Nashville and provide opportunities for Nashville students to travel and study abroad.

Cultural Programs and Events
SCN connects people through creativity. From theater to science, the programs of Sister Cities bring international culture and entertainment to Nashville and allow artists to work together across cultures.

Community Service
SCN connects people through caring. In partnership with other community organizations, Sister Cities makes a difference globally and locally, bringing world perspectives to local needs and realizing international cooperation in meaningful local service.
