Welcome to Neighbors Abroad

Neighbors Abroad is the official Sister City organization of Palo Alto, California, promoting citizen diplomacy and international friendship. Our mission is to provide the people of Palo Alto and its sister cities an understanding of each other as individuals, as communities, and as countries — and to foster a better understanding of the world. Founded in 1963, Neighbors Abroad today manages year-round activities for Palo Alto and its six sister cities.
