Community Connections in Russia under the broader Forecast program IQC was administered by PH International and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Community Connections promoted public diplomacy, economic growth and the development of civil society in Russia and Eurasia through an exchange of experiences, culture and values among program participants, American families, host businesses and local communities. A practical internship program that combined seminars, workshops, site visits, and meetings with American professionals with hands-on practical internships, Community Connections provided participants with an experience lasting three to five weeks in the United States and with an American host family experience.
