International Community Programs (ICP) - Unassigned Program

Chapters interested in starting a new International Community Program (ICP) can apply to adopt an Unassigned Program. All Unassigned Programs have been reviewed and approved by the Application Review Committee (ARC) and therefore, meet our international community partnership criteria.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a program transfer because the original partnering chapter was unable to fulfill it's commitment to this community. As an incentive, any chapter that is approved to adopt a Program Transfer will have the Program Fee waived for the first year. The chapter will be expected to complete the program and ensure the community's needs are met, based on the request for technical assistance outlined in the Community Program Application and Partnership Agreements.
