EFPSA has been granted funds for a collaborative project between the Training Office, Social Impact Initiative and Finance Office through the financial and educational support of the European Youth Foundation (EYF) of the Council of Europe. This project was applied to the call of EYF for Annual Work Plans in October 2017. The project consists of two activities: Train the Trainers Summer School and the second cycle of workshops of Better Together. These two activities together form the annual work plan of the project which aims to help in tackling discrimination.
The European Youth Foundation (EYF) is a fund established in 1972 by the Council of Europe to provide financial and educational support for European youth activities. Namely, the foundation is only for youth NGOs from Council of Europe member states and European Cultural Convention Signatories (Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Holy See) – EFPSA being one of them. The headquarters of the EYF are located in Strasbourg, France.
The EYF’s mission is to support “young people in getting closer to their objectives and their vision of a better future“. They aim to do this by offering guidance during the application process via 2-way communication, providing extended evaluation of content and methodology with respectful consideration of the NGOs’ work, and by transferring knowledge. In addition, the EYF values diversity, flexibility, respect, approachability and teamwork.
