EFPSA Academy

EFPSA Academy is a 3-day long event of non-formal education, during which about 25 youth volunteers from different NGOs within Europe will get the chance to develop specific skills that are relevant for their work in the NGO, by participating in high quality workshops and trainings delivered by professionals and NGO trainers. The theme of the EFPSA Academy changes for every edition, depending on the needs and current developments within youth NGOs. The theme of EFPSA Academy 2020 will be established shortly by the EFPSA Training Office. This EFPSA Event usually takes place in May.


Joint Executive Board and Member Representatives Meeting  (Joint EB&MR Meeting)

The Joint Executive Board & Member Representatives Meeting marks the halfway point through the EFPSA mandate, bringing together the EFPSA Working Community for a week-long face to face meeting. The meeting provides the perfect opportunity for EFPSA to evaluate the first half of the mandate, prepare for the second half, refuel motivation and work together on developing EFPSA further. This EFPSA Events usually takes place in October.
