School Outreach Program
The embassy’s School Outreach Program is designed to provide Swiss secondary school students with the opportunity to meet with U.S. Embassy staff to learn more about the United States. The discussions can be carried out in English, French and German. That said, many teachers see this as a good opportunity for their students to practice their English-language skills.
