On October 1, 1997 the Los Angeles chapter of People to People International was born. Ten charter members gathered to begin a journey that would touch the lives of people from nearly every corner of the globe. PTPILA's first act of hospitality was to welcome a young student from Japan over the Thanksgiving holiday. Since those early days, our members have visited Sweden, Romania, France and Italy (just to name a few) and welcomed nearly 100 guests from Russia, Hong Kong, Egypt and numerous other nations.
PTPI encourages participation in a wide variety of programs that advance Peace through Understanding. Local chapters, such as PTPI LA, are made up of volunteers in communities worldwide who support these PTPI programs and participate in unique activities locally while reaching out at the international level.
