"You have to trust people be-
cause times have changed."
For Beth, this is her first
trip out of the country. Asked
if she is making any special
preparations, she joked that
she's trying to convince her
mother to buy her some new
clothes. But, she added, she's
doing some research on her
own about Germany and its
people. Steve said he is think-
ing of things he can show his
West German visitors and try-
ing to make some extra
money.
Steve has been to Israel,
having celebrated his bar
mitzvah at the Western Wall.
The two are excited about
going — Beth, because she al-.

ways wanted to go to Europe,
and Steve, because he likes to
go to foreign countries, espe-
cially when he can meet some-
one his own age.
They both look forward to
the trip as a learning experi-
ence, but expect to have a lot of
fun too.
Weiner said he is excited by
the teens' enthusiasm, and
hopes the program will be a
success. To date, 11 have reg-
istered for the trip. There are
openings for four more.
Weiner, who directs 35 area
BBYO chapters comprised of
MOO youth age 14-18, said the
idea for such a youth exchange
came out of the Versailles
summit meeting in 1982,
when the U.S. and western
European governme•ts hoped
to develop a program to expose
children born after the post-
war period to contemporary
Europe so theiricnowledge of
these countries would not be
based on notions of the past.
BBYO was the only Jewish
youth organization to attend
meetings about the exchange,
Weiner said. At the same time,
West Germany proved to be
the most anxious to put the
program into effect.
President Reagan's Interna-
tional Youth Exchange Initia-
tive kicked in funds as well as
the U.S. Information Agency,
and by last fall plans were
finalized.

Alan Freedman, BBYO's
national director of programs
and publications and the ad-
ministrator of the youth ex-
change project, represented
BBYO at the initial meetings.
He came to Detroit in January
and developed the brochure for
prospective participants.
The Washington office of
BBYO was charged with pick-
ing a region to pilot the proj-
ect, Weiner said. Michigan
was chosen for a number of
reasons.
"The Michigan program is
one of the strongest in the
country," based on member-
ship, continuity, leadership
and programming, Weiner
said. Consistent growth was
another consideration. Weiner
said that despite having chap-
ters in Grand Rapids, Windsor
and throughout the metropoli-
tan area, the region is pretty

much "one-city centered," that
the membership is concen-
trated mainly in the Detroit
area. Finally, Weiner's repu-
tation had a lot to say for the
Michigan region. He said he's
a veteran staffer — "I've been
around a lot of years" — and
he's been to Israel three times.
His experience in taking
groups abroad also proved to
be a point in favor of the region
being elected to take on the
project.
BBYO's European partner
in the pilot project, the Euro-
pean Exchange Services, has
