In this time of increased anti-globalization pressures, deciding to come to the United States for higher education or employment can be daunting. Better serving your international employees or students/scholars by offering exceptional Cultural Connectivity Programs will ensure those who’ve made it here stay and thrive!
Cultural Connectivity Programs (CCPs) are programs that pair members of your international population with domestic counterparts - for cultural sharing, language practice, and friendship. These include Conversation Partners, Mentorship, Community Friendship Programs, and more.

In 2016, co-founder Mischa Cohn was looking for a tangible way to counter-balance U.S. anti-internationalization policies. He partnered with a public state university to create a Cultural Connectivity Program that pairs international students with local families for cultural sharing and fun.
It was a hit! Soon dozens of cross-cultural student+family pairs were enjoying growing relationships and strengthening bonds.
In the ensuing years, we came to realize that the program's biggest challenge was a lack of a unified tool-set to administer it and ensure the best possible international constituent experience.
AmbassaDoors was created to help higher ed institutions and globally-oriented corporations better serve their international guests while boosting retention results. We do this by offering a technology backbone that allows our clients to offer efficiently-run Cultural Connectivity Programs. The platform ensures volunteers are safely vetted, actionable program-impact data is captured, and ISSS / HR departments can deploy their resources as efficiently as possible.
Just as it is for your organization, SAFETY is our primary concern – data security and personal safety.
The AmbassaDoors tech stack adheres to all GDPR personally identifiable information privacy standards and utilizes industry best-practices to protect PII data.
AmbassaDoors allows you to ensure that only volunteers who submit required waivers, background checks, and/or only those who complete cultural sensitivity training modules are allowed to be matched with your international participants.
