Cultural and Other Exchanges

An important segment of the exchange activities run by the U.S. Department of State is the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) which enables Czech professionals to develop in-depth knowledge of the United States and to establish contacts with their counterparts in the U.S.

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. More information can be find at
