  • "A Club" project at Bajza street elementary school 

Help kids improve their English skills through games and fun activities. The club is led by volunteers from abroad who DO NOT speak Hungarian. The presence of foreign volunteers encourages the students to practice their English through interactive activities. The school will also offer free training to help volunteers improve their facilitation skills, especially with kids. 

Sign up by e-mailing Flora Laszlo at civicengagement@ceu.edu

  • Wekerle project 

A group of volunteers from Wekerletelep, District XIX, Budapest, is looking to expand their team. There are two opportunities for those who are interested:

1. Wegetable commando, every Thursday (4:30-7:30pm)
 Since 2015, volunteers have been spending their Thursday afternoons collecting fruit and vegetable donations in the market of Wekerletelep. After collecting the donations, volunteers bring them to their partner families in the community. This is a great opportunity to build meaningful relationships with the organisation's community partners and learn more about life in Budapest, outside of the city centre. 

2. Saturday Special School every Saturday (2-5pm) for English tutors: Every weekend, eight children from different partner families spend an afternoon of fun with volunteers. Tutors don't need to know how to speak Hungarian, and English is taught using games and other interactive activities. The  goals of the program include improving the kids' self-confidence and their social skills. This creates a cheerful, positive, and accepting space for the children in the community.
