What is Team works! Young Expert Exchange for Sustainable Development?
Team works! enables young experts to undertake a four-week assignment in a partner enterprise in Germany. The Senior Experten Service (SES) is responsible for managing the Team works! in Germany programme. Young experts from African countries spend a period of several weeks on assignment in Germany, with an SES expert from outside the enterprise on hand to provide support.

It is open to young people between 18 and 30 years of age who are at the end of their training or just beginning working life. More specifically, participants must be at least in their third year of training or have initial work experience of relevance to the assignment in question. Team works! in Germany involves you spending several weeks on an assignment in Germany, with an SES expert from outside the enterprise on hand to act as your mentor.
