Showcasing U.S. values and democratic institutions.
The Open World Program is an initiative of the U.S. Legislative Branch that has enabled more than 17,000 current and future leaders from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan to meaningfully engage and interact with Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and thousands of other Americans.
All delegates stay with Chicago-area homestay hosts. Learn more about becoming a Homestay Host.

“As a result of the meeting WorldChicago arranged with the visiting [Open World] group of logistic professionals from Turkmenistan in 2013, my company has benefitted. I’m in Vienna this week meeting with one of the companies whose home office is here. One of the visitors was from their Turkmenistan office. We actually have worked with them in the past, but now we have a closer relationship partly due to our meeting at your office. Looks as if we may now expand our business into Turkmenistan!”
