The Euro Challenge is a great learning experience for these students as they go beyond the headlines of economic news to fully understand key economic concepts and the complex realities faced by policymakers. By learning how Europe is dealing with these challenges, the Euro Challenge helps young Americans to have a better understanding of how Europe and America are deeply connected.João Vale de AlmeidaFormer EU Ambassador and Head of the European Union Delegation to the United StatesWashington, DC
I saw my students get excited and take initiative in learning about world and European economics, gain experience in talking to educated adults in unfamiliar surroundings, and develop confidence. Your program provided the impetus for these results.Peter SteinTeacherOceanside High School (2012 Euro Challenge semi-finalist), Oceanside, NY
I appreciate the motivation the Challenge gives to my students to go beyond the classroom in learning about economics and Europe as well as improving their speaking skills.Alice PurcellTeacherFirst Baptist Christian Academy (2012 Euro Challenge semi-finalist), Pasadena, TX

Thank you for your time, commitment and energy in developing a program that fosters independence and growth for the youth of this country.

I have to say it was a life changing experience for my daughter – to engage in such a high level of intellectual discourse, to be taken seriously and challenged by individuals who are part of the global economic elite – truly amazing.Reva Jaffe-WalterParent of Montclair High School Team Member 2011
The Euro Challenge brings the EU to life better than any text book or web site. It gives bright young Americans a lifelong interest in economics and in the EU-US partnership – which today is more important than ever, as we work together for sustainable global recovery.José Manuel BarrosoFormer President of the European Commission
Besides the financial, economic, and global education they received, the competition was confidence-building and an opportunity to strengthen their communication skills. It was refreshing for me and instructive for the team to see the different organizations working so well together towards a common goal. You guys pulled off a flawless event and I’m grateful for your dedicationThomas BradyTeacherThe Delbarton School (4th place in 2012 Euro Challenge), Morristown, NJ
