Call for Two Youth Trainers for EuroPeers International Annual Network meeting, Italy 2021
Event Date: 23-26/09/21 (Trainers presence required from 21/09/21)
Application deadline: 09/07/2021
EuroPeers International is looking for Two Youth Trainers
EuroPeers International is a peer-to-peer driven European Network that encourages young people passionate about EU youth mobility projects to share their experiences with other young people within the target group (18-30). EuroPeers have often participated in Erasmus+ non-formal education projects such as youth exchanges or European Solidarity Corps (ESC).
A young person might also consider themselves a EuroPeer if they have a strong desire or motivation to learn more about Youth mobility projects but have not yet participated.
Annual Network Meeting
Since 2015, EuroPeers have met at the Annual Network Meeting (ANM). The event is without a doubt, the most important and exciting annual EuroPeers event. Even more so in 2021 as the 2020 meeting was postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic. As we make plans in 2021, the contracted Youth Trainers should provide assistance to the Senior Trainers and provide insights on the design of the entire programme with it in mind that the event may have to move entirely online. It would be beneficial to have some insights into non-formal education methods. We are also considering the possibility of a hybrid event, with some activities taking place in-person in Italy & others in “regional hubs” in Europe based on accessibility across borders and European-wide Covid legislative restrictions/health recommendations.
In September 2021, the IT NA plans to host 100 young people from across our 16 EuroPeers+ Partner countries. This will be the largest EuroPeers gathering to date. A Coordinator from each National Agency will also be invited to attend. Joining you will be two Professional Trainers, who are contracted to support and guide you in your Youth Training role. It is not required to have any previous facilitation or Training experience as this is an opportunity to learn and gain professional experience. The Senior Trainers will guide you to take on co-responsibility for the Training consultation, event programme, hosting of the meeting and central coordination in line with our objective to empower youth and provide development opportunities. The majority of this workload will lie with the Senior Trainers and you will be there to provide suggestions and support. You will however, be helping host and facilitate during the event.
EuroPeers+ National Agency Partners rotate the responsibility to host this meeting. In 2021, the Italian National Agency will be hosting the meeting in Rome. However, as an organising partner and the host Agency for International Coordination, the Estonian National Agency will be contracting all the Trainers for the international event.
