RHS students head to Germany for a fraction of the cost

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Not everyone can afford to study abroad. That's why Riley High School has a Blue-Collared Exchange Program.

It gives students the experience of a lifetime for a fraction of the cost.

On Thursday, nine students and two adults left for Germany for a 4-week exchange program.

"The learning experience is really incredible because not only are they experiencing different cultures, theya re actually attneding school. They are shadowing their student, plus they are volunteering to go to other classes," said Catherine Shutz, the Riley High School Co-sponsor of GAAP Program.

The students will arrive back home on July 12.

This is the fourth year Riley students have traveled abroad.
