A Sister City relationship is a broad based, officially approved, long-term partnership between two communities in two countries. Sister City partnerships have the potential to carry out the widest possible diversity of activities of any international program, including every type of municipal, business, professional, educational and cultural exchange or project.
Sister City programs are also unique in that they inherently involve the three main sectors in the community: local government, business, and a wide variety of citizen volunteers.
