Short Deployments in the South
Dare to look over the rim of your tea cup and into another culture and way of life – in Africa, Asia or in Latin America! Mission 21 offers young adults the possibility to do just that in one of two programmes:

  • PEP! Globalisation, But of a Different Kind
    PEP! (Professionals Exposure Programme) is a continuous education programme for young adults who hold a professional qualification. A participation in the PEP! programme will allow you to deepen your professional skills and to develop inter-cultural social competence.

  • Up and Away
    In the programme «Up and Away», you will get to know some of the social, cultural and religious facets of your host country as you carry out small tasks in the projects of our partner institutions.
