Youth and Unemployement Working Group
YUWG in Hungary
The YUWG (Youth Unemployment Working Group) of Utilapu has been sending groups of disadvantaged children and youngsters abroad to youth exchanges for years - among others inhabitants of a children's home in Budapest (Pestújhelyi Gyermekotthon) and young people representing the largest Hungarian family organisation (Nagycsaládosok Országos Egyesülete). On these youth exchanges participants have the opportunity to get acquinted with variable topics in a non - formal way (like human rights, environment protecting, social responsibility). The coordination of international exchanges is done by volunteers on the Spring and Autumn Meetings, on these usually Utilapu is also represented.
Last September we started to lead courses in a children's home with non-formal methods. This program is in an experimental period, but we hope to get more volunteers involved this year.
