As the voice of YFU organisations on European level, EEE-YFU represents YFU in the European public arena, often in partnership with other youth organisations. The Pool of Representatives (PoR), comprising of about 20 YFU volunteers, actively supports the Global Office to ensure that YFU is well represented externally.
Join the PoR :
EEE-YFU gives volunteers the opportunity to represent YFU at international level and further develop their knowledge and skills in the field of international-level youth work, European policy and external representation. Being a member of the PoR, representatives have the chance to represent YFU in seminars, meetings, conferences and other events and structures at European and international level.
If you are motivated and have experience within YFU, you are welcome to apply for the PoR.
Background knowledge is also relevant, but of secondary importance. In order to support you as a new representative, before starting officially you mandate, you will participate in a 6-week-long online training course on advocacy.
BECOMING A REPRESENTATIVE
Before taking the final decision to join the team of representatives, volunteers should aware of the levels of involvement and commitment in the PoR which vary significantly depending on their profile:
1) Permanent Representatives regularly represent YFU with specific institutions/ and are often required a high level of involvement and availability;
2) Associate Representatives are informed about other external representation opportunities, when they arise, and they are selected to attend (they are required a lower level of involvement and availability).
