In 2018, Millstadt Sister Cities Organization completed its 18th annual Youth Ambassadors Exchange.  Each summer up to five Millstadt-area high school students travel to Gross-Bieberau and spend 4 weeks with host families.  In turn, the Millstadt students’ German exchange partners typically arrive in August for a month-long visit.  Millstadt Sister Cities Organization provides some financial assistance to participating youth and host families.

As a result of the generous support of local residents, businesses, and civic organizations a total of 79 Millstadt students and 82 German students have participated so far in this Youth Ambassadors Exchange, and lasting friendships have developed between the Millstadt and German youth and their families.
