The Certificates International is a 3-part certification system for individual achievements and competencies developed in international youth work projects. Currently the certification system allows three different forms/levels of certification with optional possibilities to documents one’s participation, engagement or competences shown in an international encounter and exchange project. It has been developed by associations, initiatives and organisations active in international youth work, who have agreed on a use of uniformed certificates, aiming at a synergetic effect towards better social recognition of the educational value of international youth work by the wider public in Germany.
