Initiative Going Abroad Makes a Difference
In the tradition of its founder, the Robert Bosch Stiftung actively promotes multilingualism in Europe. As part of its focus on international education, the foundation initiates and supports programs and projects which aim at getting children and adolescents excited about a new language and culture in a playful way.
The FranceMobil program was launched in 2002 in cooperation with the French Embassy in Berlin. Since the beginning of the school year 2014/2015, the Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO) is one of the main partners of the program. Together they offer scholarships to twelve young French graduates. Driving vans supplied by Renault Deutschland AG, the graduates visit kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools, vocational schools, and high schools across Germany. Their mission is to raise the interest of students, teachers, and parents in French language and culture, to convey an attractive image of modern France, and to help students make an informed choice when deciding which foreign language to learn.
