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, you will receive high-quality training sessions, get the chance to attend workshops given by experts on the topic and you 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 Communicating through the use of Emotional Intelligence. During the event, we will focus on the importance of emotional intelligence in the communication process. We will cover topics from what EI is to how to use it in volunteering environment. We will provide you with tools, skills, and practices that you can implement in a real-life setting. Our goal will be to give you skills and tools to use back into your NGO. All theories presented will be evidence-based and practiced during the event so you can grasp the skills fully.

So are you ready for the challenge?
