The aim of our project is to increase the social base of our foundation by developing the capacity of many students in Szekesfehervar and strengthening the development of their system approach and their individual and social responsibility. In this way, they can, in practice, understand one of the pillars of democracy, the ability to make independent and responsible decisions and then we engage them as volunteers.
The low level of motivation and initiative due to the lack of volunteering in the given educational institution, the lack of volunteering knowledge of the students, their teachers and, more generally, of the educational institution in Szekesfehervar leads to inadequate volunteer hosting. As a result, this tendency generates a negative perception of volunteering work.
With the development tools, we focus on developing the competences needed by students to properly assert their interests. With the HelloWork Academy, we are going to develop their primary competence, the competence for action, as a result of which they will be able to solve their tasks and the problems they arise, individually or in a group, in a targeted and specific way. This builds the competencies they need for personal efficiency.
Several related areas would be positively affected by our project. First of all, it contributes to a very important stage in the socialization of young people, which develops their attitude towards work. In addition, cooperation between the educational institution and NGOs on volunteering is becoming stronger. In this case, the needs (educational institution, NGOs) and the available capacities and resources meet, and we can establish the social synergy.
