Recruitment for Youth Exchange Trip to Greifswald, Germany [Expected travel dates: June 16-July 1, 2
BCS Sister Cities has hosted three successful student and adult exchange trips during the last five years to our Sister City of Greifswald, Germany. Greifswald is located in northern Germany near the Baltic Sea.
BCS Sister Cities seeks ten student ambassadors who are current 9th or 10th graders in Bryan or College Station. After interviews, selected students and two adult chaperones will travel to Greifswald, Germany in June for a two week home-stay with a English speaking German student and family.
This cultural exchange program seeks to promote peace through mutual respect and understanding of others. The German students will return to BCS in April, 2015 for a one week exchange staying in their American student's home.
This unique opportunity attracts mature young students who have a strong desire for foreign travel in a protected environment. Students who have previously participated have often incorporated this experience into their university majors of international relations, language studies, and political science. This program requires a family commitment to host the German student when in the US along with participation in their group activities.
The approximate cost varies each year reflective of airfares, transfers, and some activities.
A community meeting will be held on Monday, November 18, 2013 6:00-7:15pm at College Station Fire Station #3
1900 Barron Road, College Station
All interested students and parents will learn about this fantastic travel opportunity as a student ambassador.
