From April 6-8 2018, the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) will hold its fifth Youth Leadership Workshop in Amsterdam, Netherlands. 

The workshop aims to train the next generation of volunteers and leaders of the European haemophilia community. The event programme consists of a mix of lectures, hands-on exercises and sharing of experiences and best practices from more mature volunteers. The objective is to sensitize young people to the importance of being active in their respective National Member Organisation (NMO) and to prepare them for potential issues that they may be facing in their volunteering life.

When: April 6-8, 2018

Where: Amsterdam, Netherlands
