Through its extensive network of Charleston-area resources, the Charleston Council for International Visitors works with programming agencies and IVLP personnel to ensure visits to Charleston meet project goals.
While CCIV frequently develops progamming related to the following resource strength areas, we are capable of building effective itineraries for nearly any project.
Home hospitality is a key component of most CCIV programming. Visitors consistently praise the home hospitality as an unforgettable part of their citizen-diplomacy experience in Charleston.
CCIV's hosts are committed to the cause of citizen diplomacy. Previous hosts have included local government officials, scholars, museum curators, and former diplomats.
In Charleston, home hospitality extends beyond home-cooked meals. Previous home hospitality events have included home-hosted meals with small groups, Iftar with local mosques for Muslim visitors observing Ramadan, and attending local sporting events.
