Network

The NGO Academy offers capacity building programmes with a strong focus on building and strengthening a network of CSO practitioners in Central and South-Eastern Europe. The NGO Academy network consists of its partners, the faculty and most importantly, its members. 


Members

The members of the NGO Academy are the heart and soul of the programme. More than 560 organizations from 14 countries share their knowledge and learn from the faculty but most importantly from each other. Our members are active in 14 countries including Austria, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.

It is the numerous participants of the NGO Academy and their valuable inputs and perspectives that make the programmes what they are: a learning journey that is supported by an extensive network of creators and practitioners.
