Lélektér Foundation has been working with youth for over 10 years. Our main goals are the prevention, harm reduction, personal development of the young people. In order to fulfil these goals we are coordinating trainings, seminars for them, their parents and for teachers as well. In this project 2 volunteers will be hosted at the foundation for 12 months. We provide a supervisor, who will be responsible for the coordination and the administration of the program; a mentor who deals with the process of induction, and mentoring the volunteers, and an EVS coordinator, who contacts the Sending organisation on a regular basis. The projectimplementers possess the relevant professional background, including the most important fields such as drug-prevention, child and young protection, social work practice. The EVS coordinator has significant experience in building national and international relations, network. The mentor of the program a young adult, the chairman of VEDIÖK (a Hungarian youth association) with huge experience of coordinating young people.
