allison's message
"My Hungarian heritage had long been a source of pride and an integral piece of who I was as a young American who, like so many others, comes from a diverse and eclectic family background. I felt my heritage when I looked at the pictures of my immigrant ancestors, heard the foreign words my relatives would mutter, and saw pictures of the rural place from where the Patakis originally came." (By our Ambassador, Allison Pataki)

Exciting changes in 2016

Since the 2012 launch of ReConnect Hungary, applicants have quadrupled and we have therefore set a target of 60 participants in 2016. Currently, the Program has 66 second through fifth generation alumni from 17 states and 5 provinces. We continually tweak the program, adding and removing elements in response to the needs and interests of our alumni. Feedback and testimonials confirm that ReConnect Hungary delivers on its promise of a deeply meaningful, life-changing event.
