U.S. Embassy Bern is an active participant in the Schulen Nach Bern program that enables students throughout Switzerland to travel to Bern for a week of debate, government meetings and embassy visits. On February 16, Embassy officers welcomed a French-speaking high school class from CO Goubing in Sierre, Canton Valais. The officers described day-to-day work at the embassy as well as life as a diplomat. During the question and answer session, the students asked about American foreign policy and presidential transitions. “It’s always a pleasure to meet with young people here in Switzerland,” commented Economic Officer Toby Wolf. “They always ask frank questions and share new ideas.”
