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?

The first ever JEF Europe trainings are designed to answer exactly these questions! We want to 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!
