European Voluntary Service: We got accredited by the European Commission

We are happy to announce that AEGEE-Dresden e.V. has been accredited as European Voluntary Service (EVS) host and EVS sending organization by the European Commission a few days ago. By this we successfully joined a group of only 5.000 other accredited organizations all over Europe.

EVS has had a major impact on the lives of many thousands of young people over the past 20 years. More than 100.000 young people between 17 and 30 took part in this EU programme, developing skills and competences by contributing to the work of an organisation. EVS is funded by the Erasmus+-Programme of the European Union.

Our accreditation lasts till the end of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme in 2020 and empowers us to e.g. host EVS volunteers. During their stay in Dresden of up to twelve months the volunteers can learn lots of skills and improve themselves while working on AEGEE.

The online magazine AEGEE Golden Times published an interview with Jan Philipp Rauprich, former president of AEGEE-Dresden, about the reasons for applying, the long application process to become EVS-accredited, and the plans and ideas we have for the first volunteer.

How to: Develop myself!

For the third time the antenna of AEGEE-Dresden organized the event Develop Yourself. As it was my first AEGEE event ever, while not even being a member yet, I didn’t really expect anything in the beginning. I went there hoping to learn something and have a little bit of fun. What an understatement!

In fact I can gladly say: This weekend was one of the best of my life! Spending three days with amazing people from all around Europe, having awesome and fun workshops, and learning important lifehacks, eating tasty (AEGEE-Dresden selfmade) food and having wild parties – that is what Develop Yourself is about!

This semester’s Buddy Program has officially started!

Like every semester we, AEGEE-Dresden e.V., organize the Buddy Program Dresden to provide support to first year international, inbound exchange, and newcomer students to the City of Dresden. With this we sustain a long tradition, as we continue what we started as Linkpartner Programm back in 2001 as one of the first International Buddy Programs in Germany. We even won some prices with it. Find some more facts here.

This semester we matched some 200+ Buddies, that are pairs of each an international and a local student. Most of them enrolled at TU Dresden.

New Board 2016-2017

On 16th October 2016 it was once again time for the annual general assembly, Local Agora, of AEGEE-Dresden. And for a new board, because the 12-month term of the old one was over. Again, we will have a board bigger than the required minimum of three persons: The Local Agora decided to add an IT responsible to the board.

One member was elected into each position by the members of our nonprofit organization attending the Local Agora through casting secret ballots.

We wish you all the best for your board term, good success in implementing your plans, and sufficient perseverance. You just got the opportunity to experience a super-awesome time within the next year!

Big demo Herz statt Hetze: Join us on Monday (17th Oct 16:00)

Freedom. Equality. Humanity.

We will do it!

By now the hatred has been celebrated on Dresden’s streets for two years almost every week by PEGIDA. A year ago, on the first birthday of PEGIDA, we set a sign against this hustle and bustle together with more than 20.000 people from Dresden during our PEGIDA counter-demonstration.

Pegida has lost weight but the social damage remains. It is part of the everyday life, because of a different appearance to be countered. It is not uncommon that people who help refugees are openly challenged and threatened. It is a sad reality that people who do not allow racist attacks to be made are rendered criminals. Freedom, equality, humanity are in danger.
