About Us

The Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOP) - a non-profit, public/private partnership between the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, the Goethe-Institut, Deutsche Bank, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, and the Siemens Corporation - was founded in 2002 to promote education about Germany, to encourage cross-cultural dialogue, and to provide the opportunity for North American K-12 social studies educators to experience Germany in person. TOP promotes awareness of Germany within the context of its education and political systems, vocational training, corporate social responsibility, environmental sustainability, culture, history, and more.
