The DTIVP welcomes you!

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
~Margaret Meed

Dacotah Territory International Visitor Program (DTIVP) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded in 1995.

We promote global understanding through professional, cultural and educational person-to-person exchanges with international visitors and local citizens. 

DTIVP is one of 100 community-based Councils for International Visitors funded by the U.S. State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program. Distinguished professionals from all over the world are invited to participate in exchange programs providing the opportunity to visit various cities across the United States and meet colleagues in their chosen field. Over 200 former and current Heads of State are alumni of the International Visitor Leadership Program.


The National Council for International Visitors in Washington, D.C. monitors our operations and serves as a resource for our local organization.  We have met strict qualifying criteria and consistently produce quality, award winning professional programs for visiting participants.
