The formal education do not prepare the youth for the active social participation, responsible decision-making and representation of their interests. The schools have no capacity to integrate such classes and there are no complex thematic programs which would help parents to prepare their children for the conscious participation of society. The objective of the project was to elaborate a model program that aims to expand the participants’ views, to improve their skills and to make them be able to represent their interests, as well as to understand social responsibility.
A primary school in Budafok ensured a classroom for the association – but many workshop had different venues; participants were coming mainly from this school, too.
The association organized a series of drama pedagogy classes which contributed to the development of conflict management skills, and knowledge of different cultures.
The chat club had always different themes thus children could develop their ability to express themselves and to participate in arguments, debates.
In the reading club children elaborated several novels which concluded such issues in which children are interested. They also had the chance to meet the authors of the read novels.
MindLab workshops developed the strategic thinking and tactical knowledge with the help of specialized games.
Financial workshops aimed to teach children about the values of money, family expenses, loans etc. Within the frame of this workshop children was preparing for a financial competition announced by a commercial bank.
Beside the 68 workshop occasions, children could participate in 2 study trips in order to get broader knowledge on Hungarian culture and also participated in 3 theater performances.
All in all, the project contributed to the development of such competencies that youth do not learn in formal education.
