CBYX Finale 2017: 350 Young Americans in Berlin

The Embassy hosted its annual Berlin Day reception for the 350 American participants in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program (CBYX) on May 19.  The participants, who have spent the past year living with German host families, enjoyed speeches from Chargé D’Affaires Kent Logsdon and Member of Parliament Bernhard Schulte-Drüggelte, as well as the opportunity to learn about careers in foreign affairs from Embassy officers.  Earlier in the day, the CBYX participants visited Germany’s Bundestag, where they had the opportunity for a Q&A session with Bundestag President Norbert Lammert and other officials.  What a way to wind up an incredible year for the CBYX program!
