Welcome to Sister Cities of Morgan Hill, CA

Sister Cities is an all-volunteer membership organization formed in 2002. Our local program is modeled on Sister Cities International (, a world-wide organization fostering connections between cities, counties, or states. Connections between cities are usually based on shared similarities that can expand into a more thorough cultural exchange.

Interested in joining Sister Cities?

We meet on the fourth Thursday of every other month at the Centennial Recreation Center on Edmundson Avenue, Room 1, at 7:00 p.m.

Please contact us to confirm the next meeting’s time, date, and location. Please note, meetings are periodically held over Zoom if community health standards require it.
