Among other activities, American Councils sponsors the Exchanges for Culture, Education, and Leadership (ExCEL) program. ExCEL is American Councils' first direct student exchange program in Lithuania. Founded in 2009, ExCEL was created by the U.S. Embassy in Lithuania and the Lithuanian Ministry of Education in cooperation with American Councils. ExCEL seeks to enhance U.S. and Lithuanian relations by promoting strong ties between a new generation of young Lithuanian and American leaders through scholarships to cover one year of academic study in an American high school. For more information about the program, click here. A descriptive PDF brochure can be found here. To make a donation to ExCEL and impact the lives of these students, please click here.
This past June, American Councils and the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Washington, DC hosted a reception honoring the 2013 graduates of the Exchanges for Culture, Education, and Leadership (ExCEL) program. Lithuanian Ambassador to the U.S. Žygimantas Pavilionis and Ambassador Anne E. Derse, former U.S. Ambassador to Lithuania, were in attendance as were over 100 guests including John Unitas, Jr., President of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation and son of the famed Baltimore Colts’ quarterback.
