Funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), IJAB fosters activities in the field of youth and professional exchange with the U.S. As of 2022, IJAB coordinates a U.S.-based training program for German social workers and an internship program for young professionals. In addition, the publication "USA Special" provides insights into U.S.-German youth exchange.
What could U.S.-German cooperation in the field of youth look like? What characterizes it? Why is it important? The authors and interview partners in the IJAB “USA Special” show that transatlantic exchange benefits everyone involved, especially young people. Let the vast range of exchange possibilities inspire you! The “USA Special” is available online here and for download on the IJAB website (in German).
