Current Programs

J-1 Training Visa program is open to both applicants who already have a training program lined up in the United States and to those who are still looking for opportunities. Our affiliate offices are capable of matching qualified applicants with local organizations for a period of two to six months in duration.

Cultural exchange training programs in the U.S. are designed to allow foreign professionals to come to the United States to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to receive training in U.S. business practices in their chosen occupational field. Programs are also designed to enhance Americans’ knowledge of foreign cultures and skills through an open interchange of ideas between participants and their American associates. These programs require a J-1 visa, which is a non-immigrant cultural exchange visa issued by the U.S. Department of State.

Cultural exchange intern programs are designed to allow students of degree-seeking programs or recent graduates from foreign universities to come to the United States to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to gain professional experience their chosen field of study.

Building bridges among cultures has been the heart of CIPUSA programming from our inception. We strive to foster a better understanding of each other, our professions, and our communities. To help promote our mission, CIPUSA has developed the Building Bridges Program, a six-week professional development program under the Civil Society Theme: Social Services and NGO Administration. The program focuses on personal development, professional development, and community impact. In addition to fostering introspection and career development, the program aims to give participants the tools to better understand their host community in the U.S. and their own hometowns and to build a bridge to connect the two communities internationally.

The Open World Program at the Library of Congress brings emerging leaders from post-Soviet states to the U.S. in order to give them firsthand exposure to the American system of participatory democracy and free enterprise. The principles of accountability, transparency, and citizen involvement in government are among the concepts emphasized by the Open World Program. Today Open World has more than 14,000 alumni and a network of some 6,000 U.S. host families. The program is funded by the Open World Leadership Center (the Center), an independent entity established in the U.S. legislative branch in 2000. CIPUSA and several affiliate offices began hosting Open World delegations in 2009. Recent delegations have been hosted from Russia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, and Moldova.
