The European YWCA is member of two European umbrella organisations. For both organisations we are looking now for new representatives on behalf of the EYWCA. In these positions you will take part at the General Assembly but you also have the opportunity to get involved in different task groups (for example violence against women, climate and feminism etc.) and you can be actively engaged in women issues across Europe.
It is a great opportunity to develop your experience and networks. Our current representatives shared their reflections in 2020 on being representatives and you can read this here
