Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange

Greetings friends! If you could do me all a favor and just sign a quick petition. CBYX is the State Department scholarship opportunity I had to serve as a youth ambassador to Germany, and funds are getting cut by 50%, if not extinguished. Those of you who know what this program has done for me, think about those to come, in additon to the relationship between our country and one of the strongest countries in Europe. Danke!~

“We the undersigned respectfully request that the U.S. Department of State reverse its recent decision to cut the funding for the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) by 50% and restore its support to $4 million to prevent a drastic reduction in participant numbers. The United States and Germany are two of the world’s most powerful nations and leading economies, and CBYX has played a vital role in fostering cultural exchange, building understanding and strengthening ties between our two nations for more than three decades. The result is one of the strongest and most cooperative alliances of the last century.”
