Transatlantic Learning Opportunities

With the aim of strengthening transatlantic youth and professional exchanges, IJAB provides information on the theory and practice of youth work in the US and on international exchanges between the US and Germany. Our programs DAP (German-American Internship Program) and TraX (Transatlantic Exchange in Social Work) offer transatlantic learning opportunities for young students and graduates as well as youth work professionals. 

USA Special

With the "USA-Special", the first IJAB publication with a German-US-American focus was published this spring, presenting and highlighting existing partnerships, successful projects and topics in transatlantic exchange. The USA Special includes 13 articles from the areas of German-US-American cooperation, political education, youth in the USA, city partnerships, work camps and student exchanges. In addition to experts, young people from both sides of the Atlantic also have their say, clearly demonstrating that a transatlantic exchange is worthwhile for everyone involved.

Youth in the USA: Framework for Growing Up in the United States

In the publication "Youth in the USA", interested parties will find not only information on the country, but also insights into the structures of child and youth welfare and youth policy in the USA, as well as information on the situation of children and young people in the country. The aim is to make it easier for professionals to enter into or continue transatlantic partnerships and projects in the youth field. We hope to give them a first orientation in a system that differs in many ways from the one in Germany.
