The Service Agency and the development learning and qualification Engagement Global gGmbH programme, ASA, have started a new round of ASA-Kommunal for 2018. ASA Municipal offers young people between the ages of 21 and 30 the opportunity to work on a development-related partnership project in a municipality for three or six months. Through personnel and contextual support, participating municipalities are able to deepen their relationships with their partners, obtain support for their development policy work and gain young multipliers for commitment at a local level in global sustainable development.
German municipalities that are interested in the use of 2018 ASA participants can apply with their partner municipality until 15 July 2017. After submitting a project proposal, municipalities receive feedback on it and are able to revise the final proposal until 15 September 2017. Project selection takes place in October 2017 by the Service Agency and the ASA programme. Detailed information, commentary and project proposal forms can be found on the website or from ASA Municipal mentors.
