Pool of Experts and Trainers - make your organisation grow!

Boost your organisation’s capacity and knowledge!

Our Pool is composed of highly skilled and experienced trainers & experts from various fields, ready to support your organisations!

What is the PoET?

The Pool of Trainers & Experts (PoET) is a valuable human resource and a capacity-building tool for our Member Organisations and partners, providing a high level of tailor-made support in many different areas. Their skills and expertise range from advocacy and youth policy, to non formal education and the rights-based approach. They also have expertise in many topical areas relevant to work of the Youth Forum and its Members.




Young Trainers, coming mainly from our Member Organisations, can provide you with educational, pedagogical and facilitation support (running training, moderating workshops and policy dialogue sessions)

Specialists, researchers, consultants, analysts, can support the implementation of activities and projects requiring professional skills and insights (i.e. research, studies, consultancy)

Support tool for using PoT

The capacity building of our Member Organisations is of vital importance to the European Youth Forum and hence we want to continue offering a support tool for our Member Organisations to use the services of the Pool of Trainers. The support tool provides full or partial remuneration of the per diem costs for selected trainers, for organisations interested to use the services of the Pool of Trainers (PoT). 

It is offered to Member Organisations, who wish to use the expertise and services of the PoT, and are facing particular financial and budgetary challenges with the goal to strengthen their capacities and support organisational development. 

Interested Member Organisations are invited to apply, and more information is available in the document available for download below. For more information, please contact dasa.koribanicova@youthforum.org
