Call for Two Youth Trainers for the EuroPeers International Annual Network meeting in Gdansk, Poland 2022

Event Date: 22.09.-25.09. 2022 (Trainers presence required from 21/09/22)
Application deadline: 30/04/2022

EuroPeers International is looking for Two Youth Trainers


EuroPeers International is a peer-to-peer driven European Network that encourages young people passionate about EU youth mobility projects to share their experiences with other young people within the target group (18-35). EuroPeers have often participated in Erasmus+ non-formal education projects such as youth exchanges or European Solidarity Corps (ESC).

Annual Network Meeting

Since 2015, EuroPeers have met at the Annual Network Meeting (ANM) . The international event is without a doubt, the most important and exciting annual EuroPeers event. Especially now that the world is opening up again and we are able to meet in person again after long times of unstable event conditions due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.  In September 2022, the Polish NA plans to host 60 young people from across our 13 EuroPeers+ Partner countries. A Coordinator from each National Agency will also be invited to attend.

We are looking for  two youth trainers that should provide assistance to the Senior Trainer and provide insights on the design of the entire programme with it in mind that the event may have to move entirely online. It would be beneficial to have some insights into non-formal education methods. Due to the necessity to follow the local Covid-19 regulations and health recommendations some activities might be performed in a hybrid format.

Joining you will be one Professional Trainer, who is contracted to support and guide you in your Youth Training role. It is not required to have any previous facilitation or Training experience as this is an opportunity to learn and gain professional experience. The Senior Trainer will guide you to take on co-responsibility for the Training consultation, event programme, hosting of the meeting and central coordination in-line with our objective to empower youth and provide development opportunities. The majority of this workload will lie with the Senior Trainer and you will be there to provide suggestions and support. You will however, be helping to host and facilitate during the entire event.

EuroPeers+ National Agency Partners rotate the responsibility to host this meeting. In 2022, the Polish National Agency will be hosting the meeting in Gdansk. However, as an organizing partner and the host Agency for International Coordination, the Estonian National Agency will be contracting all the Trainers for the international event.

Your role

  • Carry out research & consultation with the Core Training Team and target Group (EuroPeers 18-35) to determine the themes, activities and programme for the ANM.
  • Support Senior Trainer in their role on tasks necessary to ensure the success of the event. Report to the Senior Trainer on your progress and work together as a team.
  • Using your personal experience, offer contributions on ensuring activities are be suitable for young people and engage the target group 
  • When priorities are co-decided, create a structured programme for each day reflecting the identified priorities.
  • Work with the Core Team to include experts where necessary
  • Make sure ALL activities are accessible. No alternative activities should be planned. Every event should be accessible to ALL.
  • Provide materials to assist the learning of participants, ensuring that the learning process will be sustainable after the ANM.
  • Share the role of “host” with the Senior Trainer, ensuring that the themes of the ANM flow throughout the event and that there is a clear objective to every event.
  • Plan for all eventualities – In person and hybrid.
  • Produce event report together with the core trainer, following the activities and an evaluation of the entire meeting.
  • Take part in the obligatory preparation meetings with the prep-team and host organization.
