The project aimed to establish a Community Coffehouse in Nyíregyháza – named Labor Café - which is run by 14-26 years old volunteers. The objective was to realize a place which functions as an intellectual and community platform from which the actively participating youngsters could benefit (both morally and work experience).
Already the beginning was realized with community collaboration: local entrepreneurs helped in renovation, private persons donated cups, mugs, glasses, furniture and several other objects. Later, secondary school students volunteered thus by contributing to the daily run of the coffeehouse, they could also accomplish their compulsory school service.
15 youth became a core group who were reliable and active and this group became able to decide independently, they shared the responsibilities of the daily run and contributed to the communication and event organizing tasks.
During the project 31 youth could realize their ideas thus they could do several free-time activities with their peers from 4 different local secondary schools.
The Foundation also cooperated with 5 other organizations and organized thematic events in the Labor Café. Thanks to a variety of programs, this open place became popular among every age group: children, youngsters, mothers, fathers, teachers, professionals, elders, musicians and artists etc.
