Become a Friend
Share your passion to inspire others
D&F Friends are leading personalities from all sectors of society who want to give back and pass on their knowledge, passion and experience. The D&F Academy enables them to teach international groups of young people - their Project Fellows - in exceptional hands-on educational projects in a comfortable manner.
Our educational programs are offered in the fields of Global issues, Arts & Culture, and Sports. Whether the specific project content is an artistic venture, social work or managing a museum, Fellows work on a topic that is important to the Friend. The resulting joint efforts and exchange of ideas foster inspiration for both the Fellows and Friends alike.
Give young people a Challenge
The Friend defines the Challenge of the project and, together with the D&F Academy team, develops the hands-on curriculum which enables the Fellows to successfully implement the Challenge. The D&F Academy team takes on all organizational issues, promotes the project and selects suitable Fellow candidates.
Being a D&F Friend is a unique chance to share one's own life experience with young motivated individuals from around the world and to enable them to lead positive change in their own societies.
By becoming a D&F Friend you can:
- Inspire the next generation
- Share your passion and knowledge
- Meet exciting young leaders
- Work on a topic that is relevant to you
- Trigger positive change
