Greifswald,Germany - High School Youth Exchange Trip - June,2014
Six high school students from A&M Consolidated HS and Allen Academy, along with their three chaperones, traveled to our Sister City of Greifswald in the state of Mecklenburg, Germany on June 16 - July 1, 2014.
Each student was hosted by a German student and his/her family residing in their home for the two week visit. Students toured the old town which was first settled in 1200 A.D. They sampled many types of food and celebrated with their hosts when Germany played in the Finals of the World Cup games. They traveled to Berlin, about 150 miles away, visiting many historic sites before returning home.
This cultural exchange program is a person-to-person ambassadorship opportunity where participants represent the Bryan-College Station community. The German students and their accompanying chaperones are expected to visit the BCS area in April, 2015 for an exchange visit. They will also experience a home-stay with the family of their American counterpart. BCS Sister Cities plans a week of local cultural activities for them.
