Youth Ambassadors to Japan

German-Japanese Exchange

Since 2009 more than 70 German students travelled to Japan for two weeks to get to know the modern and traditional culture of Japan. Over 50 Japanese students came to Germany in return.

We succesfully conducted the program "Youth Ambassadors to Japan" together with our partner Youth for Understanding e.V. (YFU) for seven years. The Robert Bosch Stiftung will conclude the funding of the program in 2016. The Federal Foreign Office of Germany takes over the funding of the program.
