About the programme
Since 2005, young professionals and volunteers from various regions of the world have been gathering work experience in Germany. On the other hand, the CrossCulture Programme (CCP) also supports participants from Germany who want to work and learn in one of the target countries. Each year around 80 professionals and volunteers from more than 35 countries take part in the programme. Employees and volunteers from all participating countries and Germany can apply for one or more of the three CCP scholarship offers. They are distinguished from each other in terms of geography and content.
Through their work in organisations in the host country, the CCP participants gain international experience and build intercultural competences. The host organisations benefit from the expertise, regional knowledge and networks of the CCP fellows. The experiences they acquire abroad contribute to the day-to-day work of their home organisation. More than 650 alumni form the steadily growing CCP network.
