No matter what subject you teach – from STEM to social studies or history – you work hard to give your students the best education possible. A German school exchange with GAPP offers your students an invaluable opportunity to step out of the everyday, develop a global perspective, and build skills that can only be learned through travel. Our program is educational and immersive. We invite all schools, with or without a German language program, to take part in our enriching GAPP exchange.
Since 1972 the German American Partnership Program (GAPP) facilitates enriching cultural exchanges between schools in the U.S. and Germany. Our Program inspires intercultural understanding, promotes German language instruction, and fosters new and lasting friendships in the U.S. and Germany.
