The German-Israeli Exchange Network

MyGIX is the network for everyone who is passionate about German-Israeli exchange.


Sharing worlds

You have had a great youth exchange experience? Tell us about it! Wondering what volunteering in Germany or Israel is really like? Insiders answer you! MyGIX is the place where we can discuss what is important to us: experiences that connect us. Topics that interest us. Worlds that we share.

Connecting with people

You want to stay in touch with your new friends from the youth exchange? On MyGIX you can start your own group. If your experiences in Israel or Germany happened a while ago, you can find old companions again and invite them. You want to learn Hebrew, Arabic or German? Find a tandem partner!

Getting active locally

You want to implement a project in your city? Organize a local regulars' table, a lecture, a reading, whatever you like – and promote your event in the MyGIX event calendar! Everything is possible, if you want it.


A digital flea market where all small and big things around the German-Israeli exchange can be offered. First of all, of course, free places in exchange programs! But much more: You are looking for a language tandem or specific learning material? Here you will find what you are looking for. Even if you are seeking for an internship, a job or a room in the other country, the community on MyGIX will help you.

  • Shimon Peres Special Prize 2024: 10,000 Euro for Israeli NPOs
    Deadline is April 24!
    Due to the dramatic situation in Israel since October 7, 2023, the German-Israeli Future Forum and the Federal Foreign Office have decided to award the Shimon Peres Special Prize in addition to the regular Shimon Peres Prize. It will be awarded to an initiative that has provided outstanding voluntary aid in Israel since October 7.
    Applications are open to non-profit initiatives from Israel that have helped to deal with the aftermath of October 7 in Israel. This could for example be initiatives that have supported evacuees, offered psychological or other urgently needed help to those who were affected. Both completed projects and those that are still ongoing are eligible to apply. Applying for the Shimon Peres Special Prize is easy and can be done through the application form. You may find the criteria for applications in Hebrew here.

  • Biss of Culture Goes Online
    On January 25, 2024, ConAct was a guest at the DIY² Lab of IJAB. The popular digital event series stands for "Do-It-Yourself in Digital International Youth Work". The topic this time was: "Let's Cook! Recipes for Intercultural Learning in Digital Encounters". On the one hand, this provided the opportunity to present the collection of recipes developed by the German-Israeli Youth Exchange Lab "A Biss of Culture. A Taste of German-Israeli Youth Exchange" published in 2023. At the same time, however, it was also possible to successfully test how the methodological impulses proposed in the publication between the recipes and stories can be adapted for digital practice.
    The detailed documentation of the event with methodological tips and recipe suggestions can be downloaded here [in German].
