Activity description

AEGEE was founded in 1985 in Paris and has a network of 13 000 members in 165 cities in 40 countries, striving for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe. The volunteering activity will take place in the head office of the organisation, working side-by-side with the board and the small secretariat. The head office of AEGEE is an international and youthful work space offering flexible and diverse learning opportunities. The volunteer will work mainly on communications (social media management, internal and external communication, website management) and event management (logistics, content management), but based on personal interest and experience of the volunteer, other tasks can be taken (e.g. advocacy, project assistance, work on the thematic priorities of AEGEE). The volunteer would have a 6-hour work day which would consist of previously mentioned tasks and time for learning. Additionally, the volunteer can take part in activities of AEGEE-Brussels.
