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 the 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 Project Management. During the event, we will focus on the importance of handling the topic of project management. We will cover what project management means and how to use it in a volunteering environment. We will provide the participants with tools, practices to develop their own skills that they can implement in real-life settings. Our goal will be to give the volunteers tools and knowledge to be used back in their NGOs. All theories presented will be evidence-based and practised during the event so participants can grasp the concepts fully. 

Some examples of the session topics that will be held:

  • Project Management
  • Managing people / Team Management
  • Leadership
  • Member recruiting
