Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange

KPC welcomes international students from Germany!

Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX)

Initiated in 1983, Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange was created to strengthen ties between Germany and the United States through citizen diplomacy. The program was founded in celebration of the 300th year anniversary of the first German immigration to the United States. CBYX is jointly funded by the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag, and in the U.S. is overseen by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Over 23,000 students have prepared themselves for success in an increasingly global world by participating in the CBYX program. KPC hosts a college student each year, from Germany, through this program.

Each year, KPC's Kenai River Campus seeks host families who offer to "share their home and help change the world." The college students in the program arrive mid-August and host families receive a monthly $225 stipend and the student will have their own vehicle. Exchange students receive continual staff support throughout the exchange year (Aug.-June).

Completing an application will not obligate the applicant, but it does notify the program that interest has been expressed. Applications are available at the KRC Learning Center (Brockel Building room 191) or by calling Diane Taylor at 262-0328 or Mitch Michaud at 252-5350.
