The Academy

About us

The AEGEE-Academy is a non-profit organisation specialized in non formal education. We work for AEGEE (read more about AEGEE here). AEGEE provides learning opportunities for the development of its members through non-formal education and informal learning. By participating in trainings courses, workshops, and active involvement in the organisation, our members improve their competences (such as leadership skills, communication skills and team management) which will be useful for their future lives.Sustaining AEGEE’s human resources and enabling its members to turn their ideas and visions into reality has been the long-term vision of  the Academy since its foundation in 1999. The main aim of the Academy is to develop and strengthen the human resources of AEGEE and to stimulate the motivation of its members. It strives to combine the competences of AEGEE members with the potential AEGEE offers them towards the achievement of the organisations’ aims. The Academy supports the personal development of AEGEE members by providing a diversity of training courses and co-ordinating a mentorship system. It maintains an overview of the personage and tasks in the organisation and empowers its members to find their place in the organisation.

How are we organized?

The AEGEE-Academy is registered with its own bank account in the Netherlands and with the Dutch chamber of commerce. Our organisation is run by a minimum of three and a maximum of six board members that are elected by the members of the Academy; our trainers. Every year a new board takes up the challenge of running the Academy and ensuring awesome trainings are given to students and young professionals all over Europe. These trainings are given by our trainers that come from all over Europe and have been educated in delivering non-formal education on many different topics. Check out our list of trainings to see what it is we do exactly.
