Erasmus+ European programme

We are the main partner of “Fáy András” Foundation in the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. It aims at contributing to the development of skills and employability of young people by giving opportunities for education, training and youth activities or sports.

According to the results of the latest sociological analysis conducted by the team of “Fáy András” Foundation, young people relate only to their current daily lives, without setting goals for the future and avoid making decisions that entail risks or uncertainty. Consequently, the representatives of the young generation face problems on the European labour market with respect to their professional growth and development. Taking this context into account and in line with the Europe 2020 strategy to reduce the school dropout rate and encourage youth participation on the labour market, the OK Center programme will provide medium term solutions by which children and young adults will identify the career that fits them according to their personality, skills and personal preferences.

The proposed methodology is developed according to the motto “Job fit is the basis for both productivity and personal satisfaction”.

In order to provide an educational action that suits the needs of the young generation, the project team will implement a methodology based on an inductive approach in the selected regions and countries. According to Eurostat data, the percentage of young people who do not have a job or do not benefit from education or training has increased from 13% to 16% in the last 5 years. Similarly, the number of socially excluded groups has increased dramatically.

“Bethlen Gábor” Fund in Hungary

In 2015, together with OTP Consulting Romania, we won an educational grant of EUR 5400 after accessing the “Bethlen Gábor” Fund in Hungary. The winning project aims at achieving three objectives by the end of the year: organising an educational camp, conducting research on young people’s need to acquire financial knowledge and creating a planning and management strategic framework for the Foundation over the next 2 years.

The activities funded under this project are structured as follows

1. “Education for the future” camp

At the end of November, we organized the first free Sovata camp in the history of our Foundation. Participants were among the top teams in the penzidomar competition, organized in the same month, in Miercurea Ciuc.

2. Research

We intend to gather relevant information from more than 100 high-school students on topics of interest to them and to measure awareness of the importance of financial and economic education in general. The respondents will include camp participants.

3. Development strategic framework

We want to improve and diversify the Foundation’s communication tools. The creation of this framework will provide a basis for the preparation of future projects and actions. Furthermore, it will enable us to scale the project’ results.

4. Website

We envisage a constant communication with all our stakeholders. Therefore, we developed this friendly and attractive online platform, with a modern graphic, that can present in an appealing way our team and activities, testimonials.
