200 secondary school students, their parents, teachers, and representatives of sponsoring partners celebrated the end of the 2022 USA For You program year at Berlin City Hall on November 28, 2022.
The USA For You program gave 90 participants from Eastern Germany, North Rhine-Westphalia and the city of Munich, who are aiming for a non-academic secondary school degree, the opportunity to participate in this two-week community service experience in the United States. When sharing their impressions with Ambassador Gutmann and Governing Mayor Giffey during the event, their energy, enthusiasm, and optimism made an incredible impression.
Since its inception in 2017, 300 young people have taken part in the program. The USA For You program is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection based on a resolution of the German Bundestag, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the City of Munich, the U.S. Embassy, Experiment e.V., and Youth for Understanding e.V.
