Niles Sister Cities Association

Niles Sister Cities Association is a 501c3 organization committed to promoting Niles as a global Village, developing international partnerships, networking and sharing new information and ideas through municipal, business, professional, educational and cultural exchanges.

What is a Sister City?

A Sister City is an officially-sanctioned partnership between two communities from different countries. Sister Cities programs involve the three main sectors of the community: resident volunteers, local government and businesses. Such programs provide a vital service by broadening the cultural experiences of its residents.
