Tempe Sister Cities’ encourages cross-cultural cooperation and collaboration by building friendships between people and partnerships between communities. Tempe has eleven sister cities worldwide.
Sending students abroad through our Tempe Sister Cities Student Exchange program is our top priority, as well as supporting our sister cities through activities to promote international goodwill and cultural understanding.
Fundraisers like Oktoberfest and Hackett House events support our mission to bridge cultural divides and create personal connections both abroad and at home.
The Historic Hackett House, which serves as headquarters for the award winning Tempe Sisters Cities, provides a wonderful backdrop which inspires our staff to create programs and events that allows us to participate in and enrich our community.
Our volunteers’ creativity makes Tempe Sister Cities a national leader in innovative fundraising strategies. From our annual Oktoberfest, three day festival to the Hackett House historic bakery complex.
