Study Trip 2014 
We are happy to welcome each additional member into our organization! We are always looking for young and bright students who want to contribute to the European-American and German-American partnership. If you would like to get involved and share our mission, we welcome you! Join us now!

  1. Take part in our study trips to the United States of America.
  2. Take part in our events and projects on both sides of the Atlantic.
  3. Become a member of a strong network of dedicated students in Germany, Europe and America.
  4. We greatly value the grassroots character of our organization. The YTI is what all of us we make of it! Through an exclusive Facebook group, local get-togethers, frequent events and our flagship initiatives, you are involved in every major decision. Of course, there is a board of directors, however every member can (and is encouraged to) get involved.
  5. Do you have a specific idea in mind about how to promote the transatlantic partnership? We are the right place for you to turn ideas into action. All of our events start with a simple “What do you think of this: (…)?” We are a bottom-up organization which is based on the involvement of all members.
  6. Our regional groups frequently organize topic-related get-togethers to get to know one another, exchange ideas and opinions, and form a network with partner organizations. Often, we invite speakers from outside the organization to discuss current issues of transatlantic relations with us.
  7. You have access to our memoranda on current topics of transatlantic relations. Whether the value of German as a foreign language U.S. schools or the negotiations towards the transatlantic free trade agreement: we analyze and inform.
  8. You get to know likeminded people with whom you can discuss your views on America, Europe and Germany!
