Student Exchange

Studenten Austausch

Braunschweig Student Exchange

Each year the Society, in coordination and cooperation with the city of Braunschweig, Germany, sponsors an exchange program for high school students.  Preference is given to students of members.  Omaha students live with German families while there, and German students are hosted by American families in the metropolitan area.  This is a recipicating arrangement that lasts 3 weeks in each location where the German student lives with their host American family and then the American student is hosted by a German family.

The American students begin meeting in January to learn more and to determine the number of students for the program.  The German students typically come to Omaha during March or April depending on their school calendar and the American students go to Braunschweig in June at the end of the school year.

Die Gesellschaft führt jedes Jahr mit der Stadt Braunschweig einen Schüleraustausch durch; Söhne und Töchter vom Mitgliedern werden bei der Auswahl mit Vorzug behandelt. Während ihres Aufenthalts in Braunschweig bzw.  Omaha leben die Schüler bei Gastfamilien.
