    The JointAction is the international advocacy action of the youth network young@mission21. It takes place every year in autumn. You can participate alone, with friends or with a whole group and follow the actions from all over the world. JointAction gives youth and young adults from Mission 21's partner countries and Switzerland a voice and brings them into contact with each other.

    Youth Ambassador Program

    Would you like to meet young people from all over the world, learn more about other cultures and broaden your personal horizons in the process?

    The youth ambassador program of young@mission21 makes it possible! The program offers young adults from Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America the opportunity to get to know each other, explore pressing issues in a globalized world and jointly search for solutions.

    In the first year of the three-year program, you will prepare for your exchange in Africa, Asia or Latin America together with other youth ambassadors. You will deal with urgent topics such as peace, justice, education, environmental protection and intercultural sensitivity. In the second year you will experience local ways of life and get an insight into the worldwide church. You will also learn about Mission 21's development cooperation projects. In the third year, youth ambassadors from Africa, Asia and Latin America travel to Switzerland. As a host, you will discuss with them topics that move you. Make international friends, acquire transcultural skills and share your experience with others. Become a youth ambassador for young@mission21!
