If you have ever been to an EFPSA training before, you already know this is an amazing experience.  And furthermore, being part of a TtT is a life-changing experience. Imagine yourself being the one providing this opportunity to many of your friends across Europe. What would you say if it were possible to host such an event and see the awed faces of new students learning and sharing their energy, growing together and becoming trainers?

The overall result of seeing determined and inspired people thanks to your efforts will leave enduring memories for many years! The EFPSA Train the Trainers Summer School has reached its third edition, and is now looking for an Organizing Committee.  If this Call caught your attention already  you might want to consider being the Head of the Org.Com.

Here are some good tips on how to start:
  • Recruit motivated students from your Local Organization / University who are willing to help. Brainstorm ideas and a plan (e.g. venue, sponsors etc);
  • Write a proposal to the Board of Management (BM) outlining your event concept (remember to keep it general) and send it to applications@efpsa.org;
  • Once the proposal is approved by the BM, the whirlwind starts!

And this is a hint of how the Job Description looks like for the TtT Head of Org.Com:
  • Appoints and manages the local Org.Com
  • Has to find an appropriate TtT venue
  • Does the fundraising for the event
  • Makes budget/financial decisions
  • Responsible for logistics during the TtT (food, training materials, excursion, social programme, health support, support of trainers & participants concerning arrival/departure & everything happening on spot).

Sounds difficult? Don’t worry, you have all of our support!

Deadline for applying for Hosting Country is 10th of October 2011 23:59 C.E.T.
