Community Connections Project in Belarus

Community Connections

Countries: Belarus, United States
Duration: October 2012 to December 2019
Funder: USAID
Contact:  Lisa.Posner@Worldlearning.Org

This project connects professionals from Belarus with US counterparts through tailored professional exchanges in communities across the US. Participants establish professional connections, learn about the advantages and disadvantages of a democratic, free-market economy, and examine practices and experience that may be adapted back home to address local challenges. Under successive contracts with the funder, USAID, World Learning is bringing at least 380 participants from Belarus to the US on three-week exchanges, which feature tailored training, homestays, and community service projects.
