working for understanding since 1964

On August 3, 1964, just six years after President Dwight Eisenhower established People to People International as an effort to increase international understanding through personal contact, a group of Midlanders came together to form a local chapter.

Over the years the Midland Michigan Chapter of PTPI has welcomed international students, diplomats, young global entrepreneurs and even a queen to the United States and to Midland, Michigan. Our members have traveled as unofficial ambassadors, positively representing America to the rest of the world. The chapter has provided financial support to aid efforts, students and educational programs. And we continue our efforts to propagate “peace though understanding” today.

Please join us for one of our upcoming programs and get to know us.


Contact any of our board members for more information about events or joining the Midland Chapter of PTPI.
