Corvallis Sister Cities
The Sister City concept evolved from President Eisenhower’s “People to People” program, and is now embodied in Sister Cities International, an organization based in Washington, DC. Over 900 cities, representing millions of Americans, have established links with counterparts around the world. Corvallis and the Corvallis Sister Cities Association are members of Sister Cities International.
The primary goals of the Corvallis Sister Cities Association are:
- To promote awareness and understanding between the people of Corvallis and the people of its “sister cities” in other nations; and
- To undertake activities that are beneficial to the people of both Corvallis and Corvallis’ sister cities.
We invite you to become involved with the programs of the Corvallis Sister Cities Association to help further peace, understanding and friendship between Corvallis and its sister cities in Uzhhorod, Ukraine and Gondar, Ethiopia. From short-term projects to longer committee assignments, you’ll find a place to put your interests to work. The web pages for the Corvallis-Uzhhorod Sister Cities Association and the Corvallis-Gondar Sister Cities Association will help you get started.
