Work

Seeds of Solidarity is a 10-month volunteering project, where 10 international volunteers work together in the rural area of Hungary. Living together in Szécsény, a small town in one of the disadvantaged areas of the countryside, volunteers work with schools and youth centres and deliver English-speaking, non-formal education sessions for children and youth with fewer opportunities. Our participants will contribute to our mission, and create equal opportunities to children and youth to increase the quality of their lives. During the project volunteers discover the field of their interest and have the opportunity to develop their own initiatives. Volunteers also assist Egyesek Youth Association at trainings and summer camps, and may be involved in other administrative tasks, while taking part in a high quality learning process.

Project hosted by

Egyesek Youth Association is a group of active, passionate and committed youth workers, trainers, coaches and volunteers. We contribute to communities where people are aware of their own freedom of choice, they do what they love and connect with each other peacefully.
We have organized local and international youth projects for 20 years. By methods of non-formal learning we aim that young people explore their own strengths and resources using them consciously to fulfil their personal and professional life. To reach that, we do training and volunteer activities.
We support active young people, informal groups and youth workers, and promote volunteering. We are members of several international networks: CCIVS, Alliance of Voluntary Service Organizations and International Synergy Group.
We organize international youth trainings based on specific themes, such as personal and creativity development, dance, media, communication, coaching, improvisational theatre. We have been active in hosting international volunteers for more than 10 years. We frequently organize short- and long-term EVS projects and also realize international voluntary camps, workcamps.
