The Westbury Group is delighted to launch an intensive 3-day capacity building training workshop that will be held in Budapest on June 27-29, 2011. The workshop will focus on three aspects of resource development – financial, human and technological. It will provide participating activists with:

  • Key elements required to successfully recruit, place, manage and motivate volunteers in non-profit organizations
  • Ideas and tips for utilizing social media and new technology in order to promote, advertize and strengthen your organization and its cause.

This unique hands-on training programme will be available to approximately 20 activists or professionals with up to 3 years of experience working in Jewish organizations in Hungary, between the ages of 20-35, who will be chosen through an application process.

  • Candidates must have a track record of involvement in Jewish life in their community.
  • Candidates must have an idea for an innovative programme, organization or initiative that will serve a Jewish community.
  • Candidates must be available to take part in the full 3 days of the workshop

The seminar will be held in English. If you would like to participate in the workshop, please complete the short questionnaire and return it by email along with a CV to [email protected] by no later than May 30th 2011.
