"Intercultural Exchange Now!"

jubo program 2023 25 key visual rz four to three

Mission 21 is looking for curious young adults for the current Youth Ambassador program. Who wants to meet people from three continents, go on a trip and experience new cultures, and expand their own intercultural skills? The call for applications for the 2023-25 program is open.

Our international Youth Ambassador Program facilitates international encounters, travel across cultural boundaries, and the exchange and search for solutions to pressing problems facing our society.

The education and exchange program of the youth network young@mission21 can be completed alongside school, studies or work. During two years, participants aged 18 to 30 make international contacts and expand their intercultural and transcultural skills

Questions that concern young people

The Swiss participants get to know youth ambassadors from other continents in digital meetings, exchange ideas in preparatory rounds and deal with issues that concern young people worldwide in thematic workshops. In the second year of the program, they receive and accompany the international youth ambassadors in Switzerland. And at the end, the Swiss participants themselves experience a two-week study trip to a Mission 21 partner country as guests.

The program offers a unique opportunity to connect with young people from over 14 countries and build global relationships. Together, the young adults look for ways to take action to meet the challenges of their generation. During a two-week visit, the Swiss and International Youth Ambassadors 2024 experience Switzerland together, learn more about different perspectives, diversity and cultural commonalities, seek solutions to problems together and reflect on compromises. The young people take the experiences back to their environment, assume responsibility and contribute with their expanded competencies to a society that shares challenges and strives for more justice and peace in an intact environment.

Tender underway

Young@mission21, Mission 21's youth network, is running the Youth Ambassador Program for the third time. Former participants from the past two programs contribute their experiences as "alumni" and also participate in the implementation of the current program.

The call for applications is open to young adults between the ages of 18 and 30. Prerequisites are openness, motivation and willingness to engage in intercultural encounters and new perspectives, as well as a good command of English. Those who complete the program receive the Certificate of Inter- and Transcultural Competence, which is issued jointly by Mission 21 and the Institute for Communication and Leadership (IKF) in Lucerne.
