Information providers


The most important actor in awareness-raising about youth work is the Elisabeth Youth Fund (Erzsébet Ifjúsági Alap). Its website, Facebook- and Instagram pages feature news and developments of youth work and training opportunities. 

The website (honlap) of the Erasmus+ Youth Unit of Tempus Public Foundation (Tempus Közalapítvány) features information about E+ Youth trainings, and they regularly organise events to increase awareness of the opportunities.


Key initiatives


The initiative introduced in sub-chapter 2.6 Raising awareness about youth volunteering opportunities relates to youth work too. The former New Generation Award (Új Nemzedék Díj), now called Elisabeth Novum Award (Erzsébet Nóvum Díj) aims (célja)

'to draw attention to the innovative initiatives based on cooperation and volunteering, and addressing young people, plus involving them in the implementation. 

A project of an organisation or an informal group is evaluated according to the relevance in the following 3 main topics: innovation, cooperation and volunteering'.

The award means a HUF 1 million (around EUR 2 800) financial support to the winning organisation, for a project which integrates the above-mentioned evaluation aspects and which will be realised in 2021.
