International Projects e.V. is a German Berlin-based Youth Organization and was founded in 2013 by two U.S. State Alumni (Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute) and former project managers of the federal Youth Press Organization. The aim was to lance a new chapter of european integration, transatlantic friendship and international collaboration. The main purposes are the delivery of education, the facilitation of mutual understanding, tolerance and encouragement of international collaboration and friendship.
To implement those goals, we organize, coordinates or supports international youth projects with a focus on non-formal education; particularly international projects in the domains of youth exchanges and integrative collaboration. Hereby we create a network of young leaders from Germany, Europe, the United States and the whole world. Furthermore we offer workshops on different topics such as fundraising and public relations for non-profit organizations and business companies and simulations on Political Systems and Conflict Resolution.
The aim is to foster political, social and cultural knowledge of young people and to encourage social, communicative, intercultural and political decision-making and responsibility to implement a better civil engagement. We want to contribute to peace and intercultural communication between young people through international youth projects.
