Meet America with the U.S. Embassy Warsaw
Are you interested in learning more about the United States from an American diplomat? You can! The U.S. Embassy’s Meet America program coordinates speaking programs for American diplomats to meet with Polish audiences.
Who can participate?
The primary audiences for Meet America are high school students, university students, civil society organizations and NGOs, and cultural organizations.
Who are the presenters?
Our featured speakers are American diplomats who work at the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw. We also organize events with American Fulbright Scholars and Polish alumni of U.S. professional exchange programs.
What can the presenters talk about?
Our diplomats can address a wide array of subjects. We primarily focus on foreign policy, economics, democracy, multiculturalism, American history and holidays, energy, and business. As we also would like to hear and respond to your interests in the U.S. topics and issues we are open to suggestions.
Where does Meet America take place?
Meet America programs often take place in the U.S. Embassy. When possible, we also send our diplomats outside the Embassy to meet with groups all around Poland.
What is the language of Meet America programs?
Most Meet America programs are conducted in English. Please be aware that Meet America is primarily a speaker program, not a language program. To participate in Meet America, audiences must possess sufficient English skills to understand and converse with U.S. diplomats.

On April 4, Deputy Cultural Attaché Frankie Sturm delivered a presentation to a group of twenty-five Belarusians in Warsaw. Mr. Sturm’s presentation – “The Citizen as Activist in the USA” – explored the ways regular citizens organize social campaigns in the United States, and how those skills might be useful to members of the Belarusian diaspora.
