The Open World program brings current and future leaders from post-Soviet countries to the United
States. Delegates complete an intensive, short-term program that relates to their professional or civic
work. Observing their professional counterparts in the U.S., they get a firsthand look at the American
system of democracy and free enterprise.
Rotary clubs in the United States can participate in the program, which is managed by the Open World
Leadership Center and funded by Congress. Rotary districts or clubs prepare an eight-day program that’s
designed around an Open World civic theme, such as:
• Accountable governance
• NGO development
• Higher education and innovation
• Social issues, focusing on health care provision and social services including special education
• Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The program emphasizes professional development, exchange, and cooperation. Key concepts include
transparency, accountability, civic initiative, and volunteerism.
The host club coordinates all on-the-ground logistics and prepares a program schedule:
1. Provides a homestay for six Open World participants and an interpreter for eight days and nights
2. Meets participants at the airport, and provides transportation between scheduled events,
activities, Rotary club meetings, etc.
3. Prepares a substantive program schedule that includes professional meetings for a minimum of
four full working days (32 hours), meals, cultural activities, and opportunities for participants and
hosts to get to know each other and share ideas
4. Submits a final report (host narrative, final agenda, cost share form, articles, etc.) and the
Expense Reimbursement Report/Request Form with corresponding materials to Rotary (both
submitted by a host coordinator)
Delegates and their American hosts and presenters often stay in touch and collaborate after the visit.
The group of participants includes five delegates and one facilitator. Delegates are young professionals
(aged 23-35 and for some delegations 23-30) from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Russia,
Serbia, Tajikistan, and Ukraine. Delegates are civic leaders in the fields of health, economics,
environment, education, business, local government, law, journalism, NGOs (nongovernmental
