From Local to Global
Santa Clarita Valley International Program (SCVIP) is the local non-profit sister city organization of Santa Clarita. SCVIP was founded by Carl Boyer, former City of Santa Clarita Mayor. SCVIP’s mission and purpose is to shepherd the creation and development of sister city relationships where education, economic development and cultural awareness may be exchanged, implemented and strengthened.
Sister City relationships mean opportunities for learning and economic growth for the Santa Clarita Valley. The breaking of cultural barriers, partnerships in business and education, cooperative problem solving and strategic alliances will benefit both the community in the Santa Clarita Valley and those communities abroad whom Santa Clarita has established partnerships. The City of Santa Clarita has two Sister Cities — Tena, Ecuador and Sariaya, Philippines.
SCVIP seeks to engage the residents of Santa Clarita in a wide variety of activities. Whether your interests lie in sustainable development, economic growth, education, humanitarian aid, arts and culture or international travel, SCVIP facilitates and participates in activities such as:
- Sister Cities
- Medical and Literacy Missions
- Sister Schools
- Global Collaborative Programs
- Annual Young Artists & Authors Showcases
- Student Exchanges
- International Travel
