Information providers

The main actor in raising awareness about youth work was the Elisabeth Youth Fund (Erzsébet Ifjúsági Alap). Its website, Facebook- and Instagram pages featured news and developments of youth work and training opportunities. The most recent development was the launch of a resource map listing local youth work actors as well as local strategic documents and community spaces ('Erőforrástérkép'). The website and the resource map is still accessible and will be available till at least 2027.

The website (Erasmus+ Ifjúság) of the Erasmus+ Youth Unit of Tempus Public Foundation provides information on E+ Youth trainings and they organise regular events to raise awareness of the opportunities.

Key initiatives

Most of the initiatives aimed at raising awareness were created and coordinated by Elisabeth Youth Fund (EYF) and as such they are not updated any more. EYF published youth work-related publications and handed out the Elisabeth Novum Award (Erzsébet Nóvum Díj) that aimed to draw attention innovative initiatives in youth work and youth volunteering. (For more information see sub-chapter 2.8 Raising awareness about youth volunteering opportunities.)
