The FMS has a small professional staff with a large group of volunteers that conduct the trainings. The trainers have relevant expertise in politics and train for the FMS out of idealism. In this way we keep the costs low and the involvement high. We fight for fledgling democracies and for (social) democrats in countries where freedom is under pressure. The FMS supports the development of political parties by means of providing trainings for them at their request. For example, we educate young politicians in the Balkans, we support democrats in Eastern Europe and we train the new social democratic parties ams_in_arabische_wereld.jpgin Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.


Jobs and Internships

Several times a year we offer internships within the various areas of our organization. The vacancies will be published on our website. For more information on this please visit the 'Doe Mee' tab in the Dutch language section of the website. 

Become a volunteer for Africa Day and other events. The success of our events is largely dependent on the efforts of volunteers. If you would you like to help make the next Africa Day or another of our events a success, please get in touch.
