It is a pleasure to once again open the Call for Senior Buddies!
As some of you may know, over the last few years EYP Austria developed a Buddy System that connects new members with more experienced ones to create a support system within our organisation. New members (Junior Buddies) can ask questions concerning Sessions, the EYP in general etc., while experienced members (Senior Buddies) can share their knowledge with the “next generation” of the EYP.
We would like to gather a pool of potential Senior Buddies, from which we can select Buddy Pairs as the year goes on. If you choose to participate in the Buddy System (which I hope you do) you might only get your Junior Buddy after the National Session, which won’t take place until May of this year.
I hope many of you take part in this project, as especially in these times, where in-person sessions are no longer possible, we would love to give new members of EYP Austria the support they need and deserve.
Make sure to register here until 28 February 2021!
For further information, you can contact Conny (firstname.lastname@example.org), who’s in charge of the programme.
