Our Ambassadors Empower Nonprofits
After graduation, Julia loved the idea to go abroad to challenge herself and get new experiences. Through Project Hope International, she was given the chance to combine learning new skill sets and helping as a volunteer in many of PHI’s projects. People bonding and giving back together is a true joy of hers and she thanks PHI for the opportunities to help, learn and make a change together.

Already years before graduating from Catholic High School it was clear for Jannik to spend a year abroad, working in a social project and having a positive, meaningful impact through unpaid voluntary work before starting college.
Having traveled to a variety of countries and continents around the world before, for him it was a conscious decision to choose the United States as a destination for his social service, as he will continue his journey in life by attending a German - American double degree Program in International Management after returning from the Project. During his year he will support and drive forward the different nonprofit organizations he will be plugged into while gaining significant new experience for himself and his future career.
"When I was about 10 years old I started volunteering at church and in my community. Volunteering is incredibly satisfying and there is something about acting in a way that is consistent with my principles. Being able to say I changed something in the world, in the lives of others, gives meaning to my being here beyond simply looking after myself. For me, it changes my life from being purely self-centered to being something with meaning for others, too.” I am a high school student, play baseball and just started my first company. In my free time I spend time with my family and friends.
Posterior graduation of highschool in the first quarter of 2016, Moritz was enchanted by the conviction of confronting and managing new challenges along with contributing to an improvement of deprived population groups.

After school, Jakob wanted to do something meaningful and different. He wanted to experience new cultures and help people. Project Hope International gave him the opportunity to develop himself by living in a different country and learning new skills. He is thankful for what he has and wants to give something back. He thinks PHI is the right organization to implement those thoughts.
