JiVE | Youth Work International – Experiencing Diversity

is a youth policy initiative to promote education and participation. JiVE is implemented in cooperation with several partners and consists of seven sub-initiatives. In 2012, SAGE Net became a partner of the sub-initiative “Kommune goes International” (IJAB in cooperation with the Association of Local Authorities) which aims to strengthen international youth work at the local level, especially projects for disadvantaged young people and young people from the immigrant community. Through individual organisational trainings we will be able to offer other groups of youths access to our weltwärts volunteer service and to work on further development of the programme.

Ventao stands for “Verein entwicklungspolitischer Austauschorganisation e.V.”, which is a German term for an association for exchange organisations in the field of development policy. The association is founded in 2013 as a pool for quality management and sharing of interests for German exchange organisations within the weltwärts-programme. Ventao aims to support partnerships in the area of development cooperation and understands volunteerism as space for learning and exchange between Global South and North. The association and its members promote social engagement of returnees within their communities and especially in the field of development policy.
