Mentores is a social enterprise established in 2014 in the fields of culture, education and tourism. The founders of Mentores are well experienced with events planning and management, including workshops, social and cultural projects in Ellas and abroad. Professionalism, extroversion, ingenuity and sensitivity towards social happenings are key elements of Mentores’ activities.
Mentores was created to support social and cultural integration, cross-cultural dialogue, non-formal artistic, entrepreneurial, environmental and civic education addressed to children and youths and—where appropriate—to adults and senior citizens. The activities are focused on educational/pedagogical interventions, artistic shows and performances, promotional and participatory athletic and physical activity events, awareness raising campaigns and special actions for the protection of cultural heritage, environment and traditional products and organization of alternative touristic packages for diverse social groups.
Debreceni Nyári Egyetem Oktatási Szolgáltato Nonprofit Közhasznú Korlátolt Felelosségu Társaság
Prompted by three professors (János Hankiss, Rezső Milleker, and Béla Tankó), the Council of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Debrecen resolved to found Debrecen Summer School on May 9, 1927. Their purpose with the new institution was to popularize Hungarian as the language of a “small” nation in a world in which, as Hankiss put it, “nations are so intertwined that it would be a hopeless and harmful endeavor to pick out certain thicker lines, single national threads, to the detriment of the whole fabric.” To quote Professor Hankiss again, getting to know the long-suffering Central Europe with any degree of depth “may as well start with getting to know Hungary… given that the history and cultural life of Hungary incorporate a large part of the nations and values of Europe along the Danube River.”
Eighty years later, on June 23, 2007, the Association of Hungarian Heritage and Europe declared in the great assembly hall of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences that “Debrecen Summer School’s service to preserve the Hungarian language” makes it worthy of receiving the Hungarian Heritage Award. The same year the 80-year-old institution was awarded the Pro Urbe Award of the city of Debrecen. Is this a Hungarian success story? One from Debrecen? Probably more than either of them. It is a Debrecen initiative launched in the spirit of university integration and internationality. In the past nine decades, DSS has grown to assume nearly world-wide status and shown examples of good practice to several similar ventures. At the same time, it has gone to great lengths to remain a torchbearer of the Hungarian language and culture both inside and outside the present-day borders.
