About

SANTA CLARITA SISTER CITIES
VISION: Santa Clarita develops and maintains international and Sister City relationships in areas of interest to its citizens resulting in an enlightened and culturally enriched community.

MISSION: To foster international partnerships between the City of Santa Clarita and other cities abroad to promote mutual understanding, friendship, and cooperation through reciprocal youth, cultural, educational, professional, humanitarian, and economic programs and exchanges.

Santa Clarita has two Sister Cities – Tena, Ecuador and Sariaya, Philippines.

WHAT IS A SISTER CITY?
A Sister City relationship is a broad-based, long-term cooperative partnership between communities in different countries. Activities vary depending on what is important to both parties, and can include a wide range of cultural, education, economic and personal enrichment opportunities.

SISTER CITIES INTERNATIONAL
Sister Cities International (SCI) was created by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956 to create and strengthen partnerships between the United States and international communities.

He envisioned a network that would be a champion for peace and prosperity by fostering bonds between people from different communities around the world.

SCI is a people-to-people program aimed to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation — one individual, one community at a time.  This network unites tens of thousands of citizen diplomats and volunteers in 545 member communities with over 2,100 partnerships in 145 countries on six continents.

SoCal SISTER CITIES
Sister Cities International Southern California Chapter, Inc. (SoCal Sister Cities) is an extension of Sister Cities International (SCI) in Southern California.  It services SCI members from San Luis Obispo to the Mexico Border, providing information and organizational support for SCI members with existing affiliations throughout the world and for those wishing to establish such programs.

SoCal Sister Cities serves as a clearinghouse for information, an information source on matters of protocol, and a reference source for SCI members.
