Within the context of the African- German Youth Initiative, you can find a range of programme formats providing you with many options to become active in terms of development policy in accordance with your individual talents and objectives. For example, the ENSA programme accompanies school partnerships and enables participants to take part in a school exchange.
Project-oriented exchange opportunities with scholarships such as ASA are an alternative, and these are aimed at young students or persons in gainful employment whilst providing a stimulus for globally sustainable development in the form of a "learning workshop" with a period spent abroad.
Volunteer services such as weltwärts provide young people with the op-portunity of serving for at least six months and up to two years. The fields of activities are so varied and numerous and range from environmental education or work regarding human rights to working with a sports team.
