The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program (CBYX) provides a unique opportunity for hundreds of German students to spend a school year in the United States while at the same time giving American students the chance to live a year in Germany. As the name might indicate, the program emphasizes learning about each country's political life and the students truly form a bridge of understanding between Germany and the United States.
