Human Resources European School

The first Human Resources European School takes place in Budapest 14-21 November 2010. The Human Resources European School (HRES) is a 7-day training aiming at empowering both HR responsibles and board members of youth NGOs to develop, implement and manage HR strategies at local level.

The training has been initiated by the HR Working Group of the European Students’ Forum AEGEE and it has been designed by an international team of experienced trainers from different youth organisations in Europe. The project is supported by the the Visegrad Fund.

Together with 24 other youth multipliers and an international team of experienced trainers,

participants will …

1. gain knowledge on the challenges and solutions in HR management in youth organisations. They will learn what it takes to effectively attract, integrate, develop and maintain members.

2. gain skills in the field of teambuilding, motivation, conflict management and coaching. Not only will they walk home with a set of valuable tips and tricks. They should also be able to confidently conceptualize and implement strategies for both long term HR and change management.

3. and get an insight into the impact and significance of being a student multiplier on a societal and a personal dimension. We will consult and feedback each other on best practices and HR concepts used at home. Moreover, with the help of the team of trainers and through peer education it is our goal to empower participants to master their own development in your organization, to build upon their strengths and to develop a plan to get the outcomes they desire.

What we DO? The HRES is based on the method of experiential learning. Sessions will take place in the form of workshops, case studies and personal coachings.

International trainers? The trainers team is composed of young people from various organizational and cultural backgrounds. All trainers dispose of diverse training experiences ranging from local to international boards of youth organizations. They have lead international youth projects or were board members in their respective student organization.

Practical Impact? Because HRES wants to reach beyond the training room, the last day is dedicated to an integrative case study. In the course of this case study the training content will be adapted to HR challenges at home: We will generate new solutions to common problems and come up with tailored action plans to fit the HR reality of our mutual organizations.
