Our goal is to help young people mainly in their everyday-problems, to give information, to organise trainings, sport and leisure time activities, to provide professional support for other organisations in our county.

Target group: 10-35-year-old young people, – children with less opportunities, – civil organizations within Tolna county

Our basic task is to provide several possibilities for young people to develop their personality. We would like to promote positive intercultural relations between local and foreign young people. The EVS/ESC volunteers help to work out our aims, bringing a different linguistic and cultural dimension to our association. Hosting volunteers give a non-formal learning way not only to the volunteers but the local young people, too. The common work and leisure time activities offer young people a taste of the foreign cultures whilst  they widens their horizon, and stimuli to get to know other countries and languages.
