Call for Working Group Members to develop a new EuroPeers Training Concept

Working period: March to June 2022
Application deadline: 6th of March

EuroPeers International is looking for a working group consisting of 2-3 EuroPeers, 2-3 Trainers and 2-3 National Agency employees to develop a new and updated training concept for future Europeer trainings


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 (18-30). EuroPeers have often participated in Erasmus+ projects such as youth exchanges or European Solidarity Corps (ESC). The network was founded in 2005 and is currently a strategic collaboration project that is active in 13 countries.

The need to develop a new Training Concept

The goal of this working group is to analyze the existing structure and methodology of the current EuroPeers trainings in order to identify which core elements are best practice examples and well functioning. These elements shall be used as a base for the development of a new and updated version of the EuroPeers training that is matching the needs of the network and is providing a sustainable training format for recruiting more EuroPeers in the future.

Expected Outcomes:

  • analysis of the existing training formats
  • new and easily adapted training format: consists of modules that can be moved around according to needs of the group and training context

In addition

  • strengthening communication strategies within the network during and after the trainings
  • focus on inclusivity: how to include people from diverse backgrounds? Alumni are alumni and every story counts, necessity to reach a more diverse target group with the EuroPeers
  • push the participatory approach of the trainings and network forward: getting engaged and staying engaged

Your role

  • Analyze and identify the core modules for a sustainable EuroPeers training concept.
  • Plan and elaborate on a common structure for future EuroPeers trainings within the network, together with the other international working group members.
  • Using your personal experience, offer contributions to ensure the developed training concepts are suitable for young people and engage the target group.
  • Taking into consideration the varying national realities of the network when planning the training – by for example developing different core modules out of which the training can be puzzled together (different focus blocks).
  • Work with the Core Team to include experts where necessary.
  • Make sure the training modules can be adjusted to all eventualities – a training concept that is suitable for various formats: in person, hybrid and online.

All of these tasks will be supported by the EuroPeers coordinator.

Requested Experience in order to join the Working Group

One essential requirement is that you are either a trained EuroPeer – this means you have completed a EuroPeers Training on a national or international level and you are aged between 18-30, or you are an experienced Trainer that has international training experience. It is beneficial to have some prior knowledge of non-formal education methods, possibly from participating in ESC or other Erasmus+ projects yourself and that you are familiar with the core values of the EuroPeers project. Alternatively you are a National Agency employee and would like to add the perspective of the National Agency into the training development process.
