Open for Late Applications: Free Training on Migrant Advocacy

Are you a non-EU citizen living in Hungary and would you like to improve your skills for community organization? Would you like to represent your migrant community in consultative forums and raise awareness through media and social media effectively?

The free 60-hour training program of Subjective Values Foundation in the fall of 2017 not only offers a theoretical knowledge on these issues but participants can also take part in a series of consultative roundtables with decision-makers. Late joining to the program is possible from the third training session on 9 September, 2017.

The program is designed to train non-EU citizens living in Hungary to advocate the interests of their migrant communities at state- and local-level forums, making these communities more actively engaged in policy dialogues and decision-making processes. As an optional element, participants will be offered the chance to put their knowledge on the subject into practice in consultative roundtables with public authorities and administrative bodies, alongside and after the training.

The aim of the roundtable series is to provide feedback to policy-makers and public administrators on how public services in Hungary can be improved to be more inclusive. For this reason, those volunteering as migrant community representatives will be asked to carry out a community needs assessment in advance, in the planned topics of the consultative events: education, culture, health care and social policy, employment, immigration and aliens control.
