Stay Connected with American Councils

American Councils offers several ways for alumni of our overseas Russian programs to stay connected with our organization and with the thousands of other alumni in our network.

Alumni Resources

After the completion of your program in Russia, we hope to stay in touch with you and help you remain connected to American Councils and other program alumni. We proudly offer the following opportunities for alumni of our programs:

  • LinkedIn Group: Curated with topical articles of interest, job opportunities, and event invitations, the LinkedIn Russia Alumni Group offers members the ability to network with other program alumni and information on all things Russia.
  • Alumni Newsletter: Russia Alumni Newsletter is published quarterly and features content of interest to our alumni, such as alumni updates, new American Councils programs, blogs from current participants, and photo contest winners.
  • Special Events: Throughout the year, our office plans events for alumni of our programs, both in our Washington, D.C. office and in other cities throughout the U.S. and in Russia.

If you are not currently receiving the quarterly newsletter and/or have not received an invitation to join the LinkedIn Group, please contact the Outbound Department at American Councils and request access.

My homestay experience could not have been better! My family was very social and very helpful with my speaking and listening. They took me around the city and made me feel as though I was just one of them.
