100,000 Strong
in the Americas

President Obama launched 100,000 Strong in the Americas to increase educational exchanges in the Western Hemisphere and strengthen U.S. relations with the countries of the Americas through student mobility.  The goal of 100,000 Strong in the Americas is to ensure that we are preparing youth throughout the Western Hemisphere with the cross-cultural skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century economy and a generation of leaders who can reach across borders.  

That is President Barack Obama’s vision for 100,000 Strong in the Americas. Students are the key to this connected future. Only by studying, learning, and working together can we take advantage of the growing opportunities in our Hemisphere and prosper together.  This bold vision is only possible through your partnership.
