Outreach-KONTAKT is USAREUR’s only regulatory outreach community relations program and connects us to the local populace in current, enduring, and former USAREUR communities.
The Outreach-KONTAKT program gives American Soldiers, Family members and civilians an opportunity to learn about Germany and understand its culture alongside Germans and citizens of other countries. It serves as a bridge to overcome cultural differences. Outreach-KONTAKT club members are goodwill ambassadors for both the United States and Germany.
The Outreach-KONTAKT clubs are organized under the umbrella organization “Bundesverband Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft für alle Outreach-KONTAKT Clubs in Deutschland” BDAF [Federal Association of German-American Friendship for all Outreach-KONTAKT Clubs in Germany].
The Outreach-KONTAKT clubs are also registered as non-profit associations with the German government. Each club has an elected board composed of German and American members.
