Throughout the year, IGLYO receives several invitations to contribute with presentations, training and facilitation to events organised by various institutions. In addition, IGLYO provides young LGBTQI activists in Europe with its own learning and development opportunities, where training expertise is needed.

This is why IGLYO would like to build its own Team of Trainers, made up of talented and motivated LGBTQI activists who will be trained and supported to act as facilitators and trainers at various conferences, workshops and meetings and invites you to express your interest in being part of this team!

This year, the people selected to become part of the Team of Trainers must commit to the following cycle of events:

  1. A Mentor’s training, where the Team will receive knowledge and skills to act as team leaders and mentors for young activists. It will take place in Brussels, over 2 days, during 10-11 June.
  2. IGLYO’s Activist Academy, where the Team will have the chance to practice their skills, acting as mentors and team leaders for the young Activist Academy participants, as well as take part in a range of skills-based workshops delivered by experts from important institutions. It will take place in Berlin, over 5 days, during 17-21 July.
  3. A Training of Trainers, where the Team will have the opportunity to acquire deeper and more technical training design and facilitation expertise. It will take place in Brussels, over 2 days, during November (actual dates will be decided together with the Team).

Through this series of events, IGLYO hopes to build a dedicated and talented Team of Trainers that can effectively represent the organisation and contribute to sharing our knowledge throughout Europe.
