Application Deadline: June 21st 2015
Young professionals and volunteers from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine can apply for the new module “Eastern Partnership”
The CrossCulture Internships Programme (CCP) is an exchange and dialogue programme of ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen). The programme is implemented in partnership with 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 stay in another cultural context.
The CCP transfers our commitment to intercultural dialogue into action. It gives young people from Germany, Islamic countries and– from 2015 on– European Union’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries the chance to gather varied experiences abroad within their fields of professional activity and to share those experiences in their home countries.
