RUSSIAN-AMERICAN
COOPERATION
INITIATIVE

Advancing Dialogue.
Cultivating Trust.
The Russian-American Cooperation initiative is a volunteer-driven NGO that evolved from a student-led organization at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Our focus and passion is the future of U.S.-Russia relations because we believe that global security challenges and existential risks to humanity cannot be effectively dealt with in the absence of cooperation between these great powers.

Our mission is to help advance dialogue and cultivate trust between the next generation of Russian and American leaders through the facilitation of short-term exchanges, work abroad opportunities and foreign policy debates.
