about this program
ReConnect Hungary is a unique cultural, educational and social immersion program for young adults aged 18-26 of Hungarian heritage, born in the U.S. or Canada. In Summer 2014, a new group of individually selected young Hungarian-Americans will begin a two-week journey of rediscovery—to learn about their Hungarian roots in a totally new way. Gain a deeper understanding of your Hungarian heritage while enjoying a living culture!
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)
