Chesterfield youth heads to Germany 

By: Bonnie Krueger


Selected from a national pool of applicants, Hayden Sampson was selected to travel to Germany through the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange program with three other St. Louis youths as part of the Youth For Understanding USA [YFU] scholarship program.

The prestigious scholarship provides selected high school students with the opportunity to spend the summer studying abroad and exploring local culture in their host country.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program offers fully funded scholarships to students each year and covers round-trip airfare to Germany, placement with a German host family and in-country support services.

YFU is an educational nonprofit that advances intercultural understanding, mutual respect and social responsibility through exchanges for youth, families and communities.
