Become a coach for the ESN Winter Introduction week 2022!

ESN Amsterdam is currently organizing the Winter Introduction week 2022 for incoming exchange students at the University of Amsterdam and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. The program will take place between Thursday, February 3rd, and Saturday, February 5th and it is full of cultural activities, fun workshops, and social events! Would you like to participate by helping us out as a coach? We need you to show students what Amsterdam and the universities have to offer!

 What does being a coach mean?
It is the perfect way to meet the new international students while participating in the fun and interactive Intro week program. You’ll be assigned to a group with another coach and together you will participate in all activities with them and share your tips and tricks of the student life in Amsterdam. As a coach, you are the main contact person between ESN and the students, which requires a certain commitment and motivation. If you want to further develop your communication and leadership skills, this is a great opportunity for you! Be aware that if you apply, you have to be available during the Intro days (3.2.-5.2.)! More information will follow after registration. Sign up HERE!

Coaches get free participation and a discount on the ESNcard.
