2018 marks a year of milestones and achievements for Cultural Vistas. It was 55 years ago, on May 2, 1963, that the organization was officially founded in New York City. That’s more than five decades of building careers, transforming lives, and positively impacting the world through immersive educational and skill-building exchange programs.
In addition to its emerald anniversary, Cultural Vistas is also celebrating milestones for several of its signature exchange programs, including the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX).
Next week, we will commemorate the occasion at the Cultural Vistas Awards Gala on Thursday evening, September 27 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Lower Manhattan.
At this special event, we will recognize the invaluable contributions of several individuals and institutions that have helped to shape the organization we are today —while raising funds to ensure that future generations continue to have access to transformative international experiences.
