Sister Cities’ guiding principles have been developed over the years to provide citizen diplomats worldwide with a strong common purpose and direction.

Sister Cities members serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world as citizen diplomats.

Our Code of Conduct is an ethical guide that exemplifies our global outreach in promoting peace and understanding.

Sarasota Sister Cities members employ high ethical standards and treat fellow members and guests with dignity and respect.

We support our mission and goals by volunteering our services, fundraise and/or work to sponsor a project with our international partners abroad or on projects at home in Sarasota.

We all work with integrity to contribute our expertise and service to accomplish the mission and goals of the Sister Cities Association of Sarasota, Inc (SCAS).

Can I promote my business in SCAS?

Your business can only be promoted if you are a Donor for a major event or program, or if you sponsor an event or special promotion that relates to the work we do with our Sister Cities. You may also use this opportunity to put cards and brochures on the tables for publicity, and of course you’ll enjoy publicity prior to the event and the chance to network at these events.


SCAS recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs and we are fortunate to have a STAR Leadership High School student serve on our Board as the Youth Ambassador.

“At our core, Sister Cities International recognizes, celebrates, and magnifies the catalytic power of people-to-people interaction through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.”

  • Former SCI President & CEO Roger-Mark De Souza
