IVLP Alumni Engagement
We are eager to sustain global connections with our ever-growing IVLP Alumni network! At WACNH, we typically host on average 300 international visitors to New Hampshire each year! We hope that you all enjoy learning about the multitude of ways that we support continued engagement post-IVLP programs! Although these individuals' in-person or virtual IVLP experiences in NH have ended, our collaboration efforts and newly formed friendships continue!
Please enjoy watching our virtual IVLP Alumni Spotlight Series interviews below by clicking on their photos. These individuals are all contributing towards such great work in their own countries, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to reconnect virtually in this space. We hope that these diverse IVLP alumni perspectives highlight how impactful these IVLP programs are on a global scale.

"Every Every youth of the world should visit the US under IVLP program, so you know the new world... How the world is progressing and how you can grow yourself with the help of your peers and by the experiences of the people who are living around you."
"Overall, my experience was really pleasant. Really, the people were extremely welcoming and very kind. I absolutely loved visiting New Hampshire. I definitely want to come back socially. Maybe to go skiing with my family!”
"I am grateful for being part of the IVLP program. It was a great opportunity to learn from US experiences and participants’/Colleagues' experiences. The best moment was learning about the disability field in US and mainly related to inclusive diplomacy."
