“To promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time.” – Sister Cities International mission statement
The Rennes-Rochester Sister Cities Committee is a non-profit, volunteer organization, committed to establishing friendships, building understanding, and developing economic relationships between the people of Rennes, France and Rochester, NY, USA.
Rochesterians and Rennais have shared skills, passions, talents, and time with each other via person-to-person exchanges for more than 50 years. Students, doctors, musicians, dancers, photographers, teachers… so many exchanges, delegations… so many connections! And new ones are being made every day!
Join a delegation headed for Rennes. Help host the next one coming to Rochester. Live and study in Rennes. Host a student on an exchange. Attend a concert by a visiting musician. See a photography exhibit on loan from a Rennais gallery. Or just come and be a part of our international family.
