JEF Europe is one of the leading pan-European youth NGO networks. Our political work is very well recognised and appreciated all across Europe. However, our local and national sections are all facing similar organisational challenges: how to grow? How to achieve a stronger impact? How to be sustainable despite the high turnover?
After a successful year of JEF Europe trainings in 2017 we want to do it all over again in 2018! The goal of these trainings is to help develop your capacities as individuals and as sections to become more sustainable, more impactful, and stronger.
We also want you to share with and get inspired by other JEFers and find ideas and friends for your next projects!
