AEGEE-Academy is a non-profit organisation specialized in non-formal education. Even though we are registered as an independent NGO in the Netherlands, we are part of AEGEE-Europe (read more about AEGEE-Europe here). AEGEE provides learning opportunities for the development of its members through non-formal education and informal learning. By participating in training 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 helpful for their future lives. Supporting AEGEE’s members to turn their ideas and visions into reality have been results of our work. The main aim of AEGEE-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. AEGEE-Academy supports the personal development of AEGEE members by providing a diversity of training courses and co-ordinating trainers.
How are we organized?
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 AEGEE-Academy and ensuring awesome trainings sessions are given to students and young professionals all over Europe. These trainings sessions 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 training courses to see what it is we do exactly.
