AICGS’ New Transatlantic Exchange Program for Young Minorities

Opportunity Type: Internship
Application Deadline: April 15, 2022
Description: AICGS is pleased to announce its inaugural German-American youth exchange program on the theme “Immigration, Integration, and a New Transatlantic Generation.” AICGS is recruiting twenty young leaders from academia, media, business, politics, and society with little or no experience with transatlantic relations for seminars and site visits in Washington and Berlin.

This innovative program will establish new connections between communities growing principally from an immigration background and address common challenges of integration such as unemployment, political and societal leadership, and international engagement. Project participants will include a core group of young leaders for intensive discussions and also interaction with the broader community of experts and advocates focused on issues of immigration, integration, and cross-cultural understanding.
