People who make the difference

Become a partner

Why should you become a partner of the ASA-Program by hosting ASA participants?

Are you working for an organization with social, ecological or cultural objectives? Are you looking for young people dedicated to fair and sustainable development?

As a partner of the ASA-Program you are enriched with committed students and young professionals who support your team and your organization as interns. The ASA participants bring a tangible contribution to the projects and to the objectives of the partner organizations, for example in the form of studies, analysis, organization of training sessions and workshops or media work. While they bring in their know-how and ideas, they are also eager to learn from you. It is a win-win situation for both sides.

After their internship, the participants get involved in Europe as multipliers in Global Education. They share their understanding of global interdependencies and simultaneously lobby for sustainable development. As a partner organization of an ASA project, you can create momentum for the future involvement of the participants.

What are the internships in Africa, Asia, Latin America and South-East Europe about?

The projects give the participants the opportunity to better understand global interdependencies and development policy issues. The participants can acquire organizational and practical skills in an international context and simultaneously, support the Southern partner organizations with qualified collaboration.

Examples of ASA projects in the past: Environmental education in Mexico; theatre production for the promotion of democracy in Georgia; civil peace-keeping in the Philippines; organizing football activities to promote tolerance and equal opportunities in Kenya.
