EYP the Netherlands organises two Alumni Weekends for its alumni each year: a Spring weekend and an Autumn weekend. These weekends are a great way for alumni from across the Netherlands to reconnect and socialize. The 18th Alumni Weekend of EYP the Netherlands will take place from the 21st to the 23rd of September.
In line with tradition, the Autumn Alumni Weekend will focus on training. The Head Trainer of this weekend is Marta Sznajder, an experienced alumna of EYP Poland. She who will put together different modules for this weekend together with two fellow Trainers: Giedrė Birmontaitė (EYP Lithuania) and Âli Okumuşoğlu (EYP Luxembourg).
The Training Weekend will focus on providing our new and old alumni with guidance on staying active in the EYP organisation. This includes modules on the different capacities that alumni can fulfill at sessions as a volunteer: being part of the media team; tackling the academic side as a chairperson or taking care of organisational aspects as an organiser. Additionally, the Training weekend can provide new alumni with a basic understanding of the internal structures of EYP and the international governance of the organisation. At the end of the weekend, all participants will hopefully be ready to follow their own path in our organisation with confidence!
Aside from the training, there will also be other activities and an evening program. After all, the weekend is above everything a fun get-away in the Dutch countryside, full of activities, socialising and meeting new people or connecting with old friends.
