An inspiring message from former WorldDenver Board member and current Foreign Service Officer, Norma Mozee

Dear WorldDenver Members and Supporters,

My name is Norma Mozee, and I am a Foreign Service Officer. As a professional diplomat, I have recently returned from Venezuela and will be embarking shortly on my next assignment representing the United States in Denmark. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in this way, and am looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead.

Before taking the leap to becoming an FSO, I was a citizen diplomat, living and working in Denver and taking advantage of all that WorldDenver offers...Read More


Before and After: The Life-Changing Effects of an International Exchange Program

The impact of professional and youth exchange programs can have both immediate and long-lasting. This article captures reflections from participants of this year's Youth Ambassadors Program for Argentina and Chile, some of whom spent 10 life -changing days in Denver.

About the Program:
Since 2016, WorldDenver has worked in partnership with World Learning in Washington, DC to implement the State Department's Youth Ambassadors Program for Argentina and Chile. The program brings 13 impressive youth, ages 15-17, along with 2 adult mentors, to Denver for 10 days to gain the knowledge and leadership skills to become more engaged in their communities, and get to know the United States and their home countries, as well as the members of their own group of ethnically, religiously, and nationally diverse participants. Youth Ambassadors addresses three primary areas for the students: civic participation, appreciation of multi-ethnic diversity, and youth leadership. In addition, for the adult participants, it addresses adult leadership and mentoring. 
While they're in Denver, the participants engage in workshops, site visits, and community service activities, and connect with local peers. They also stay with local host families who add a crucial cultural exchange component to the program. 


WorldDenver honors the profound impact of our Founding Executive Director, Karen de Bartolomé, as she retires from her role.

Many people have asked how to recognize Karen's retirement and her profound influence and leadership as the Founding Executive Director of WorldDenver. In response, the Board of Directors has established a special "Karen and Charles de Bartolomé Fund" in her honor. Karen has generously asked that gifts for her retirement be directed to this charitable fund which will continue to strengthen WorldDenver's mission and impact in the region by bringing the world to Denver through more opportunities for exchanges, international leadership development, and discussion on pressing global issues. After some well-deserved time off to travel, Karen is delighted to continue to engage with WorldDenver members, programs, and events well into the future. She also wishes to express her deep gratitude for your generosity and dedication to WorldDenver's mission during her tenure.

If you have been touched by Karen's passion for citizen diplomacy, youth exchanges, cross-cultural learning, and international affairs, you may send your charitable gift to
WorldDenver, 3607 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Denver, CO 80205
Please indicate "Karen's Fund" in the memo or call us at 720-330-9284 to donate via credit card.
