Our objective is to support talented young people living in Bodva-valley or in Cserehat who otherwise forced to migrate by a personalized mentor program.
The mentored are 14-35 year old talented people on the fields of science, culture, business or sport. The mentors are succesful experts on the same fields who may no longer live in the region but has personal fidelity for it.

Contact between the mentors and the mentored is based on their own decision, considering their profession, needs and eventuality. They set up a concrete and measurable goal (e.g. starting an own business, getting a new job, participating in foreign studies or internship program, beating one’s former sport) recordwhich should be reached by the mentored person until the end of the project and could give a feedback on the efficiency of the program.

Our association is the project manager, other experts to be involved in the program will be found within the project process.

Results of the project partly can be directly utilized in the region as the business plans made by the mentored will generate starting new SMEs, that can carry out those job creating projects and are suitable to be financed by EU funds or investors. The mentored can benefit from cultural, scientific and sport outcomes for their own personal carriers, so they help their homeland indirectly. We are ready to share the experience and methodology of the program with other depressed regions.
