Mayflower

Mayflower is our second newest bilateral project that aims at fostering intercultural understanding between Switzerland and the USA & Canada by getting to know the country. Our goal is to give the Swiss students an opportunity to get to know the lives of Northern American people and make this an unforgettable experience. In 2019, we visited Montreal and it was a pleasure to visit the french speaking part of Canada!
