Foundation Details
Highland Park has three Sister Cities: Modena, Italy; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; and Yerucham, Israel. Highland Park's sister city relationships were forged through cooperation with Sister Cities International, based in Washington, D.C. In 2006, Highland Park also formed a friendship cities relationship with Kiryat Gat, Israel. A sister city link develops when an American community links with a community in another nation. The goal for the cities involved is to learn more about each other and to develop exchanges.

The mission of the Highland Park Sister Cities Foundation is to bridge cultures and promote goodwill and global peace by providing cultural and educational exchanges, governmental, professional and economic partnerships and humanitarian assistance.
