What is EA?

The EFPSA Academy aims to bring together volunteers of European youth NGOs to enable them to develop professionally, establish networks, heighten their motivation and share experiences, while equipping them with a variety of skills and knowledge around a changing core topic

During Academy, participants receive high quality training sessions, get the chance to attend workshops given by experts on the topic and will be able to practice their skills on hands-on examples and real-life challenges.  The EFPSA Academy being a training event, skills of participants are developed based on the EFPSA training values.

Since the EFPSA Academy invites students representing different youth NGOs, different fields of studies and different parts of Europe, the Academy is naturally a diverse place to be. This vibrant mix of people and backgrounds creates an atmosphere that remains lively and highly engaging on both academic and social levels throughout the event.


This year’s topic is Team Work: How to be a better team member.

Work in NGO is mostly based on working in a team. All the knowledge, skills, potential is created by team members. So how can we ameliorate the work in the team? How can we work effectively in supporting atmosphere? What do with conflicts? This years EA will be looking for answers!

During the event we will focus on how to ameliorate the team work within European NGOs. The focus will be on raising the awareness about the group dynamics, communication and rules for a great team. We will emphasise how one can contribute to enhance the full potential of the team. Our goal will be to give the volunteers skills and tools to be used back in their NGO. All theories presented will be evidence based and practised during the event so participants can grasp the skills fully.

So, are you ready for the challenge?
