U.S. Trips for Low-Income Lycéens

Posted by Speakeasy News > Tuesday 31 January 2017 > Pedagogy

Every year, the American Embassy Youth Ambassadors for Community Service programme allows 20 French lycéens from low-income families to go on an expenses-paid two-week trip to the U.S.

The trips, for 20 high-school students and 10 youth leaders involved in community work, aim to develop intercultural links between French and American young people, and develop interest in volunteering.

The rules are slightly different from region to region, but the deadline for applications is 15 April 2017, for a trip during the Toussaint holidays in October-November. You can find all the details on the U.S. Embassy site and the its French governmental partner CGET.
