AUSTRIAN STUDENTS MEET U.S. DIPLOMATS
MeetUS is a U.S. Embassy Vienna program that offers your students (appx. 15-19 years old) the opportunity to meet U.S. diplomats and speak with them in English about life in the United States. Conversations can range from topics including U.S. education, diversity, politics, and many more.
Programs can take place at your school, at our Amerika Haus in Vienna, or virtually. We welcome classes from all Austrian schools (AHS, BHS, BMS, and Berufsschule), including those who are visiting Vienna.
Discussions are in English, and Embassy representatives share a 10-15 minute overview of the topic of your choice, followed by a Q&A session that lasts about 45 minutes. Each session includes information and free resources on how students can study in the United States.
Topics offered (but not limited to):
- The U.S.-Austrian Relationship: Then and Now
- U.S. Democracy, Politics, and Elections
- High School in America & the U.S. Education System
- Digital Literacy and Civic Engagement
- Life in America
- Black History and Civil Rights
