I created this page with the aim to help those who are interested in volunteering in Budapest through EVS with useful bits of information and advice, furthermore to make them sure that their choice will be worth their time and energy.
This page was primarily designed for prospective volunteers with Croatian background, since my main ambition is to make some steps on the way to bring the Croatian and Hungarian culture closer together by encouraging and motivating youngsters to come to the capital, meet Hungarian culture and "take home" what they liked. Despite this fact, anybody interested in volunteering in Budapest is welcomed.
I hope that on the site you will find all the information that you need to make your decision. Being an EVS volunteer in Zagreb, I tried to answer all of the questions bothered me before leaving. These were mostly put about the nature of my job, accomodation, travelling, food prices, langauge learning, possibilities of entertainment. I was also concerned about cultural issues, and I was also very greatful for any pieces of advice about how to make friendships and accomodate myself to the new environment. Besides, you can find a list of hosting institutions situated in Budapest and its surroundings, and a great deal of information about their activities and conditions provided for volunteers. All the information is at first hand, since I got into contact with all of the institutions listed above and I visited each of them personally.
