TNT: Training New Trainers

Following the autumn, 10 selected new generation trainers had to opportunity to be empowered to be trainers in Europe! They gathered for the TNT Training of My Europe, My Say. All of the event happened in Budapest, Hungary in October 2019.

TNT: Training New Trainers is one of the events which AEGEE Academy and AEGEE-Europe are organizing together. The cozy atmosphere made the 5 days training a unique experience for the participants and their trainers. The 10 selected young people received from 09.00-21.00 to intense sessions about feedback, basics of trainings, learning methods, 4Mat Cycle, Visualization, Team Phases at the training: some necessary essentials to be able to drive their future in youth organizations and become a trainer in the Academy and AEGEE.

There were 2 trainers delivering great and professional content for all 5 days, that was really inspiring for everyone and very useful for the participants’ trainer life. The trainers made all the participants enjoy every minute of the training. These intense five days successfully created an atmosphere where the whole group came to feel like a family, with high levels of trust and a safe space for sharing. Over the five days, the participants were empowered to give sessions and draft their new path regarding the topics, methodologies and how they will implement everything learned here afterward. Participants made training simulations for themselves and received feedback from the other participants and trainers.
For all of this including a successful training, we have to appreciate the effort of the trainers from AIESEC, that accepted the challenge of training this generation of trainers; to the AEGEE-Academy, for their endless efforts with the coordination of this successful event; and last, but not least, AEGEE-Budapest, for taking the opportunity of hosting this experience, creating this cozy environment, and taking care of this group of people for five days.
