Pool of Trainers and Organisers - First Meeting in 2017
Once more, YEU held its' YEU PET - People for Education and Training after the selection of new members. On 5th of May 2017, old and new members of PET arrived in Brussels, Belgium at the De Waterman.
After the the General Assambly (GA), held in November of 2016, a lot of members had to switch possitions and therefore a new call was open for the confirmation of roles and selection of new people as Trainers and Organizers. With PET coordinators Nik, Brais and Vlada, program was set and people already arrived for the weekend event. From May 5th till May 7th, PET members had various activities to build up once more the team, but also build clear understanding of the roles in order to achive quality YEU events during their mandate. Aiming in personal development, but also development of trainers and organizers, the agenda was very diverse. Besides tackling their roles, YEU also had a chance to present processes that PET members will be part of through out the year.
Building ownership, PET members had a chance to go through YEU history and strucure, got to overview the YEU workplan and go through the "Europan Badges Alliance" project while learning how to use and claim badges in events they will held. At the same time, on Saturday afternoon, PET members got to discuss and see how European Youth Forum -YFJ works while discussing with Andrea Casamenti - Board member of YFJ and Ivana Davidovska - YFJ employee.
Milos Ristovki, PET member, commented:
"I am very satisfied with the PET meeting, I liked the variety of the activities and things organized. I am happy that I met the new faces of YEU PET and I hope to have the chance to get to know more this people. I liked that there was space for learning from each other, and we came out with some specific suggestions on how to improve our work. Going back to the documents always help because we have ownership of the documents we have to use during our work. I look forward towards developing even more synergies of the YEU PET Team (work between trainers and organizers)."
YEU was happy to see once more most of the YEU PET members and to get closer to the educators and organizers that will be contributing and building all the events to be held by YEU International. Governing Board (GB) and Administrative Office (AO) is looking forward for their contribution in other structures of YEU and to fruitful YEU events.
We all wish them an amazing year to come and quality events and development when it comes to their role as Trainers and Organizers.
