2011 was a year of further professional growth of our services throughout Hungary.

  • We launched a series of monthly professional workshops for experiential educators. This is the forerunner of a national professional organization of Experiential Education Experts, which we currently facilitate in the country.
  • The first Hungarian Summit on kids with behavior disturbances was organized and convened in October. The workshop defined the issue of behavioral disorder in Hungary from several points of view and outlined some possible solutions. We are continuing to facilitate the public discourse on the topic in Hungary.
  • A cooperation agreement was prepared with the City Government of Győr, the capital of Western Hungary. With the long term support of the City Government the Pressley Ridge model was implemented in an elementary school in a disadvantaged neighborhood of the city, affecting the lives of 127 children.
  • Financial support from the Budapest City Government allowed us to continue direct services in a children’s home in Budapest.
  • Programs based on the Pressley Ridge method continued to run in 4 Hungarian educational agencies.
  • Pressley Ridge Hungary staff provided training, consultation and on-going support for 120 teachers and Roma mentors and 4 country coordinator non-profit organizations in the 4 project countries of Bulgaria, Macedonia, Slovakia, and Hungary for the international Roma Mentor Project of the Open Society Institute.
