Program Reviews:
Noah Avery Ottinger, Spring 2012 Participant
The program offered a lot of chances to meet many different people from all over the world. I love meeting people and making new friends. It is a wonderful thing to make a friend, but to forge a friendship using another language is rewarding.

Noah Avery Ottinger, Spring 2012 Participant
The University of Bonn offered excursions to its participants in cities and sites all over Germany without any extra cost to the JYP-it was all included. The opportunities to be lead through Germany by Germans were an amazing part of the program and it allowed me to see and understand the country in a way that would have been muddled up by a guidebook. Some of my favorite memories from the program involve evenings in a the parks and gardens with Germans and workers from the international office.

Sarah Corinne Cluff, Spring 2017 Participant
My favorite part of the program was finding a biology class to take part in abroad. I learned so much from my professor and peers and loved learning about biology in Germany.

Matthew E Styers, Spring 2015 Participant
The relationships I have made over the course of this year are certainly the biggest gain I have made. Not only has the immersion of the program given my German an extra boost, but the friends that I now have from all parts of the globe, Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore, Russia, Czech Republic, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, and more.
