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 changeable 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, targets the skills of participants and develops them based on the EFPSA training values.

The EFPSA Academy invites students representing different youth NGOs, from different fields of studies deriving from different parts of Europe, producing an event with a diverse character. 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. 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 and effective 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 practiced during the event so participants can grasp the skills fully.
