For the second year, EUJS is conducting a special student leadership track within the general Summer U programming, with the goal of creating a strong partnership between Europe’s student leaders.
Summer U 2013 will also be the opportunity to launch our new year-long Leadership programme, tailor made for Board Members of Jewish Students Unions.
Tailored specifically to the needs of our member unions, the overarching theme is to strengthen and support student unions and activists in their endeavours. During four days of Summer U, participants wishing to partake in the track will attend three hour sessions equipping them with skills such a project and volunteer management, public speaking and social media PR methods. Moreover, EUJS member unions will be offered time slots to share cases, expertise and ideas with the other unions and EUJS board members. Participants who have attended all four training sessions will receive certification from EUJS.
The track will be open to any Summer U participant who wishes to commit to all four sessions. Experienced trainers will run the sessions, and EUJS board members will also attend to discuss with track participants about the challenges and opportunities facing the Jewish student community. The EUJS team is very enthusiastic about this new way of engaging with member unions and student activists at its largest annual event!
