History of Association

Our association the so-called "Városi Diákönkormányzatért Egyesület"(Organization for Local Student Goverment) has been founded in 2001. It was established by enthusiastic young volunteers with the aim to support the Local Student Goverment as young adults, and to help the operation with professional, financial and juristical background.

The Organization has continuously developed and built its professional background and contacts. In 2003 we have become a NGO backdrop of the Association of Student Goverment in Hajdú-Bihar county which was created with out support. For the first time, in 2004 we organized the National Yout Week in Debrecen. From this year we also organise the Charity Gala Night in Debrecen. Then, the Civilians of Debrecen volunteer group was founded which also started to operate under our Organization. During this period we contributed to help the Local Student Goverment to organise the „Student Spring” in Debrecen seven times, in which we held the ball for students, the so-called „foolish graduation” , festivals and sports days.

In 2008, we went through a serious change. From this year’s fall the Organization did not ensure a backdrop for the Local Student Goverment anymore, because the whole informal enterprise had been transformed. The Civilians of Debrecen group had ceased and bacame a new voluntary program. This year the Organization helped for the High School Volunteers Association. It gives the opportunity for students to try themselves in the field of event management. In Hajduboszormeny we operated a youth club for a year, in Furdokert. We also gave professional help for the Youth Goverment in Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg county. Finally, this year provided an oppurtinity for us to open our new youth office in Tocoskert, Debrecen. (Köz-pont Youth Office)

The year of 2009 brought large changes again for the Organization’s life because all the objects of the Organization went through so many changes and broadened so much, that we thought it’s about time to changed our name. The Köz-pont Youth Organization as a reginal youth organization continued the sustained and value-added work.

The organization had broadened with new programs, associations and tasks in 2009. The most important change is that as a strategy partner of the Foundation for Democratic Youth, we coordinated the KÖZÖD program in eight county of East-Hungary from september 2009 to 2012. We also take part (from the sping of 2012) in the implement of the DIA 3D dispute program. Another important new change in the Organization’s life was that we started the so-called „Hallasd a hangod” program for the youth media in june of 2010, and a whole new organization started under our Organization in the spring of 2010: Children and Youth Government in Berettyoujfalu. The most important events in 2009 were the 3 Tusa Tournament, the Charity Gala in Debrencen, several sports day, the Summer Youth Festival, the „Run int he light” sport day, and the DECI professional conference.

The 2010/11 school year brought a lot of challenges again for the Organization, such as a new volunteer program started in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county. We also countinued our „I am a member of the Student Goverment and I’m proud of it!” campaing, and we also created a volunteer game. We held again our Charity Gala which was also the first event of the celebration for our 10th anniversary. As for the international level, we took part in several youth exchanges and we also recevied our first EVS volunteer. The summer was about festivals: we participated in the EFOTT, the Campus festival and the World Music Festival in Panyola. The Civilians Volunteers of Debrecen Program was also very successful this year, because it won two awards: the award of the best volunteer program at county level in 2010, and at nation level in 2011.

In 2012 we opened our new office in the Nyír shopping center (Nyiregyhaza), giving place for the youth to organize and work together. Our office in Nyiregyhaza and the Genius Club Talent Program are organized exhibitions sever times here, and the „Talent Cavalcade” for young people three times, which was about to show their skills.
