Membership / Volunteer Opportunites

Gastonia Sister Cities has been sending students abroad for more than a decade. With the support of our Mayor, City Government, Gaston County School and private schools, and hundreds of volunteers, we are able to provide this exciting yet educational program. Having the opportunity to travel to another country is an adventure of a lifetime for most high school students. It is our privilege to plan trips to our Sister Cities Santiago de Surco, Peru and Gotha, Germany, for students who work hard to achieve above average grades and display exceptional behavior. We invite you to stop by our office to find out more about our Sister Cities program and to see how to become a part of this awesome adventure. Get on Board with Gastonia Sister Cities as we experience other cultures and learn more about the world around us. Our efforts to promote “Peace Through People,” begins with YOU!
