The German American Partnership Program (GAPP) supports partnerships and exchanges between high schools in the U.S. and secondary schools in Germany.
GAPP allows groups of U.S. high school students and German secondary school students to visit a secondary school in the other country. Groups are between 10-20 students, and the visiting and host students should be around the same age. In both directions, students live with a host family.
