What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

US Department of State International Visitor Leadership Program

The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program.  Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders.  These visits reflect the International Visitors’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States.
 
International Visitors are current or emerging leaders in government, politics, the media, education, the arts, business and other key fields. Over 5,000 International Visitors come to the United States from all over the world each year. Since its inception in 1940, thousands of distinguished individuals have participated in the International Visitor Leadership Program, including 330 current and former Chiefs of State and Heads of Government, thousands of cabinet-level ministers, and many other distinguished leaders from the public and private sectors.
 
The International Visitor Leadership Program at the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council is the local leader in the US effort to involve citizens in international public diplomacy.  Since 1964, our mission has been to build global understanding through designing and coordinating best-in-class international training, education and exchange programs.
We work in collaboration with the US State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, national program agencies and the National Council for International Visitors to implement the prestigious US Department of State, International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).   GCWAC custom-designs professional development programs for current and emerging world leaders who are selected by US embassies to come to the US/Greater Cincinnati to meet their professional counterparts to learn and exchange information and ideas about a specific topic, for example, Economic Development, Rule of Law, Human Rights, Journalism, Volunteerism, Environmental Sustainability and NGO-Capacity Building.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The International Education Summit is a program designed to raise awareness of high school students regarding their future careers in the international field. Each year a different global topic is chosen and experts in that field are brought in to discuss their role in combating the issue. Not only are students able to listen to a panel discussion on the designated subject, but they are provided individual opportunities to speak directly with the presenters in "speed networking” sessions where they are encouraged to interact and learn from the professionals in their field of interest. The Summit focuses on all workforce opportunities as representatives from governmental, community and private organizations are represented.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Adults

Workshops provide professional development to equip teachers with the expertise in applying global perspectives to all subjects. Offerings include easy tools and resources on how to adapt any lesson into a global lesson plan. World Affairs Council continues to seek new and innovative ways to incorporate global education into classrooms through its community, academic, and business partnerships.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

By examining issues significant to the U.S.’ role in the global community, teachers and students can implement global dialogues directly in their classroom and become active participants in the world community. In-depth analysis of today’s top foreign policy topics serves as a diverse and applicable current events curriculum for high school students.

These materials support global education by:

Enhancing classroom lessons
Providing the basis for student or teacher-led clubs or discussion groups
Preparing students for Academic WorldQuest
Augmenting current event discussions

Population(s) Served
