Join "Meet US": Sign-up as host school for school year 2023-24

A Program of the Embassy and Consulates of the United States of America in Germany, supported by Fulbright Germany
  • "What is the American Dream?"
  • "What does a typical school day in the U.S. look like?"
  • "How does the U.S. election system work?"

These are some typical questions that young Germans often have about the United States of America. The Meet US program is designed to help clarify the picture by bringing Americans – U.S. citizens from all backgrounds of life residing in Germany, as well as U.S. embassy/consulate staff – together with secondary school students in Germany to engage them in a dialogue about everyday life in the United States. The goal is to give youth in Germany a better understanding of the U.S. and to break down stereotypes.

The Meet US program is an important part of the cultural outreach activities of the U.S. Embassy and Consulates. It reaches out to all secondary schools in Germany. This program is free of cost to the schools.

Fulbright Germany with its mission to promote transatlantic exchange supports the program. The U.S. Fulbright grantees will contribute as speakers to the Meet US program and bring their American experience to classrooms across Germany.
