Call to renew JEF Europe’s Pool of Trainers

Pool of Trainers

JEF Europe is renewing its Pool of Trainers and is therefore looking for motivated individuals interested in being part of a group of trainers ready to provide facilitation, moderation and training services to JEF Europe and its sections.

The mandate of the current Pool of Trainers runs until the end of 2023 but we have a few spots that opened due to people having to renounce their commitment due to other roles and responsibilities. Therefore, we are opening up the Pool for the upcoming months for these few spots, and will do a completely new mandate from 2024 onwards with a new call. Members of this mandate, from the beginning or from June this year, will have the possibility to reapply to be a part of the Pool.

  • Develop modules and methods for non-formal educational activities and approaches for European civic education in a diverse learning environment.
  • Serve as a human resource that JEF Europe can also promote outside of its network to other partner organisations.
