Youth Ambassadors

The 2016-17 Youth Ambassadors programme is now closed.

Please note: the Youth Ambassadors Programme is currently being reviewed. If you're interested in taking part in the future, please register your interest.

What is the Youth Ambassadors programme?

Are you enthusiastic about the German language and culture? Do you want to share this enthusiasm by promoting intercultural dialogue and running projects and activities? If you would like to bring young people from the UK and Germany together, and help to create contacts and connections, then become a UK-German Youth Ambassador!

The UK-German Youth Ambassadors are a network of enthusiastic young people in the UK and Germany, who have a genuine interest in the other country and are keen to promote UK-German activities and encourage other young people to get involved. They do this through engaging with younger pupils in their own school and local area, and by planning and running their own projects and activities.

The main aims are to:

  • facilitate contact between young people and children (primary school pupils) in the UK and Germany
  • increase young people's intercultural awareness and competence (in particular for younger pupils)
  • facilitate dialogue and debate between young people in both countries

Projects and seminar

Youth Ambassadors develop projects and activities in conjunction with their peers in the UK and in Germany, and with guidance and support from UK-German Connection. All UK and German ambassadors meet at a joint seminar during the course of the programme, in which they have the chance to discuss, develop and reflect on their projects.
