Hometown Diplomats Web Site




The Hometown Diplomat program explains to America what the State Department does and its relevance through the voice of Department employees (both Civil and Foreign Service).  Participants volunteer their time during scheduled trips to their hometowns to speak with local organizations, schools, government officials and local media. If you’re unable to visit your hometown, we invite you to participate in the Virtual Hometown Diplomats Program. 



Why it Matters


“Hometown” visits are important contributions that help the Department establish and maintain communication and relationships with individuals and local communities. Our most successful programs are those in which Hometown Diplomats have a connection to the community.
