The CrossCulture Programme (CCP) is an exchange and dialogue programme of ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen), funded by the German Federal Foreign Office. Since 2005 it offers young professionals and committed volunteers the opportunity to expand their professional and political competence as well as to gather international experience through a working sojourn in another cultural context.
Participants will be integrated in a German organisation as an intern. Besides the objectives of vocational and specialist qualification, they also gain an overview of the cultural, social and political structures in the host country, establish new personal and professional contacts and familiarise themselves with cultural characteristics of the host country. Thus, the programme offers a forum for open dialogue and mutual learning for all involved.
Requirements to participate in the CrossCulture Programme:
Applicants should show a good command of English and a permanent involvement in an organisation or institution in one’s own country. Knowledge of the German language is an additional qualification, not a requirement. Applicants should be aged between 23 to 45 years. Currently enrolled university students will not be considered for selection. Furthermore the applicants must be in good health. Their physical as well as mental working capacity must be sufficient for the requirements of a longer stay abroad and the essential work requirements of the internship.
Deadline for application is 8 January 2017.
