beschreibung der einrichtung

ICJA was founded as an exchange program for youth between the U.S. and Germany in 1949. The original mission of ICJA was to promote international understanding and to work towards a world in which tolerance and peace prevail. By the inclusion of various partner countries, the idea to form a development cooperation became gradually more important. Thus, the ICJA is founder member of the international federation "International Cultural Youth Exchange" (ICYE), which consists of several National Committees in 34 countries. Since 2013, the long standing workcamp organization yap-cfd continue to organize international work camps as an integral part of ICJA. These international encounters are supposed to help young people to get to know different cultures and social systems through first-hand experience so that they can reflect on their own cultural ideas and communicate with others about cultural norms and differences. Yap-cfd workcamps gives young people the opportunity to learn about other people, other cultures, how to live in a group, how to make decisions together....
ICJA today is a sending and hosting organization for long term volunteer services and workcamps. Al in al we send approximately 300 volunteers abroad and host about 250 host volunteers in our projects in Germany.

This organisation is accredited to run projects under Erasmus+ Volunteering and the European Solidarity Corps.
