Experiencing the Possibilities
German American Youth Program
Supporting the Youth Program of the Federation of the German American Clubs is near and dear to the heart of the GAWC Munich. For many decades it has been the goal of the German American Youth Program to promote friendship between young people, ages 14 to 18, from Germany and the US.
In past years, in order to learn about the people, history and culture of the others’ respective country, language- and get-acquainted trips, ‘Home Stays’, and various other meetings and and events were organized. During the COVID pandemic these activities were not possible due to travel restrictions. Now, the Youth Program is being started anew through the leadership of the Federation (VDAC). Educational seminars, youth travel, stays with host families in the US and youth meetings are in planning.
More information regarding the educational seminars as well as the yearly language- and get-acquainted trips to the US may be found on the home page of the Federation of German American Clubs, VDAC: http://www.vdac.de
