I'm using the minutes package from https://ctan.org/pkg/minutes and changed the header and footer with fancyhdr:

% Minutes

% Header & Footer
\fancyfoot[R]{Seite {\thepage} von \pageref{LastPage}}

Is there a way to set the header \fancyhead[C]{} to the topic of the current page and the footer \fancyfoot[L]{} to the name set in \begin{Protokoll}{Protokoll Jugendausschuss}?

If it is report based, or anything that has chapters, it would be:


You could also redefine \sectionmark to use the mark of your choice. For mor information, read the fancyhdr documentation.
