The Open World program, an exchange and partnership program designed to enhance understanding and cooperation between the U.S. Congress, American communities, and global leaders. Open World is a ten-day program which brings emerging leaders from Eurasia to the United States to engage with professional counterparts. The program was established in 1999 to foster cultural and political ties with Russia but has since expanded outreach to other countries of the post-Soviet region.

Open World offers one of the most effective U.S. exchange programs to promote mutually beneficial options for depolarized engagement between future national leaders.
Since its inception the program has brought over 26,000 delegates to 2,300 communities throughout all 50 states
