Volksbund international youth work: What is it about?

Our youth work aims at promoting the reflection of history and a peaceful living together in a diverse society. Young people discover a certain historical or political topic in an international group. They discuss their topic in workshops, get to know each other and reflect on cultural differences and common values.

They visit war grave cemeteries and other places of remembrance to learn more about the European past in the 20th century with a focus on both World Wars. In some projects, the participants work on the gravesites to support their maintenance.The groups experience community, do excursions and funny free time activities.

We are especially looking for participants from outside Germany for the following projects:
