Forthcoming policy developments


According to the information provided by the Ministry of Human Capacities in 2020, the main aims of the policy planning are related to the strengthening of local actors that work on the community integration of young people with the aim of increasing the number of vital youth communities and young people participating in organised communities.


Ongoing debates


Currently, there are no public or governmental debates on youth work. However, some segments of the youth profession have voiced their concerns about the changes in youth worker education. In 2018, only 4 higher educational institutions have started the youth specialisation of the Community Coordinator BA (Közösségszervezés BA) with a low number of students.

Based on these tendencies (tendenciák)

'we can be assured that the education of youth community coordinators has practically shrunk to a marginal level with the introduction of the BA level education' (Nagy, 2019 p. 123.).
