Join our membership today and become a member of the internationally conscious community in Springfield. Your membership will support us as we help Springfield citizens and citizens of Isesaki, Japan and Tlaquepaque, Mexico acquire a consciousness and understanding of one another.
We lead trips to our sister city of Isesaki, Japan every other year and to Tlaquepaque, Mexico every year. Our travelers act as international ambassadors for Springfield and benefit from unique experiences due to our long-held relationships with the cities.
Our next trips:
Tlaquepaque | Sunday-Friday, January 27-February 1, 2019 (SOLD OUT)
Tlaquepaque and Central Mexico* | Sunday-Sunday, February 3-10, 2019 ($2,900)

*Organized in partnership with Friends of the Garden.
Delegations of ambassadors from our sister cities of Isesaki, Japan and Tlaquepaque, Mexico visit Springfield every year, and we rely on hospitable Springfieldians of all kinds to show them what life is like in Springfield.
Join our volunteer base to contribute to our mission of “Peace through People” in a hands on manner. We could not operate without volunteer support, and we are happy to work with you to find an opportunity that suits your abilities and passions.
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on sponsorship income from the Springfield community to allow us to continue providing cultural programming like the Japanese Fall Festival and Taste of Tlaquepaque. In addition to providing your organization or business with a wide variety of benefits throughout the year, your sponsorship will contribute to cultural understanding and quality of life in the Springfield area.
