where?

PÉCSVÁRAD, HUNGARY

Pécsvárad is a town abounding in monuments and tourist curiosities. The way it looks today still reflects the dignity of the religious centre once founded by the king. This appearance dating back to many centuries ago, is fundamentally determined by the silhouette of the Catholic church and the castle in front of the backdrop of the Zengő hill. The town lies at the foot of the hill and around it, with rich civic houses and modest homes, lots of gardens, flowers and orchards. Its most valuable part is the upper downtown area, the only place in the country preserving the settlement structure of the Árpád period: crooked streets, stairways, scattered small houses, etc. The lower downtown which is today the centre of the town, formed around the turn of the 18th-19th centuries.

ABOUT THE HOST ORGANIZATION

The Association for Youth Participation, is a public benefit organization, which members are young and active young adults, who were earlier part of the Youth Municipality of Pécsvárad. The main fundamental aim of the organization is to support and help the local, regional (national) youth initiative. 

It is an important goal for us, to still help and support, the young residents of the city (between the age of 13-25).  Furthermore, we are cooperating and helping the local youth municipality. Our association in the last few years started to continually focus on broadening and improving the quality of the areas of local youth work. 

Our association currently  has multipule aims:

  • Provision and improvement of the local youth work
  • Encourage the settlements in the area of Pécsvárad for local youth work, and building partnership with them
  • Create opportunity for local young people, and for those who live in the area, for participating in international youth programmes, also increase the process of giving information about these projects.
  • Joining youth programmes, using opportunities for professional improvement, and also generating those opportunities, at least in a regional level.
  • Besides to these above, our organization is taking a significant part in the youth clubspace, which is maintained by the Youth Municipality of Pécsvárad, where we are organizing programmes, and we are supporting the maintaining the space.

Our aim with supporting youth is for young people to create a community, where everyone can find their own place, and their creativity is evolving. 

Besides all of this, it is an important point for us to educate active citizenship to the ones who are not familiar with the local causes, and also would like to do someting for their own community. We would like to achieve these aims with the youngsters who are already involved, because they are the ones who can help with reaching out to youngsters, and survey their needs.
