EYP the Netherlands is run by volunteers, who have participated in conferences in the past and continued their EYP journey as facilitators and organisers.


The day-to-day functioning and strategic development of the organisation is managed by a Board (bestuur) of experienced volunteers. They are committed to the execution of our mission and dedicated to the improvement of our events. Six Board Members are elected per Informal Poll among the active volunteers and installed by the Supervisory Council for a 1-year term on April 1st. The 2022-2023 Board consists of:

As treasurer of EYP the Netherlands, I am responsible for all financial matters of the organisation. My tasks include setting a yearly budget, drafting financial reports, declaring taxes, and overseeing the finances of our events. Additionally, I support the National Conference Coordinator in the organisation of the National Conference.

Fleur Kiliaan

national conference coordinator & Fundraising officer

As National Conference Coördinator I support and guide the Head-Organisers of the National Conference. Adding to this, I am the fundraising officer. This entails that I am in charge of contact with other businesses in order to organise collaborations and sponsorships.

Eva Wildöer

REGIONAL conference coordinator & outreach officer

As Regional Conference Coordinator I oversee and support the organisation of the Regional Conferences of EYP NL.  Additionally, in my role as outreach officer, I aim to diversify our organisation by reaching new alumni from different backgrounds and locations in the Netherlands!

Morris Hillebrand

hr coordinator & pr officer

As Human Resources Coordinator, I am responsible for the contact with our Alumni. Additionally, I am responsible for Public Relations. In this role I manage the social media channels of EYP the Netherlands and I make content for them.

Safe Team

The safety, dignity and wellbeing of participants and volunteers at our events are guarded by the Event Safe Persons (ESP, vertrouwenspersonen), who are supervised by a National Safe Person (NSP).

Contacting an ESP or the NSP will be treated with confidentiality. Private information will not be shared with anyone, unless once agreed upon with the person in question.

National Safe Person

The National Safe Person (NSP, vertrouwenspersoon) is responsible for ensuring that the safety and wellbeing of those involved with EYP NL in any capacity is upheld.

The NSP is available for questions, concerns, and reports of harmful behaviour from everyone involved with EYP NL. They also support the Board of EYP NL when it comes to policies related to welfare.

Event Safe Persons

During events of EYP NL, two Event Safe Persons (ESP, vertrouwenspersoon) will be present, to whom you can go when you feel there is a matter of concern regarding your own or someone else’s safety or wellbeing. If you do not feel comfortable reporting an issue to an ESP, or if there is a matter you want to discuss when not at an event, you can always contact the National Safe Person.

The Event Safe Persons for the 2022-2023 season will be selected in September 2022.
