Educational Travel Tour for Young Adults

ReConnect Transylvania

Visit Transylvania for a week right after the Hungarian birthright trip, or apply for our new scholarship: live, teach and intern for a semester.

ReConnect Transylvania

A total of three million ethnic Hungarians live as minorities in the seven countries surrounding Hungary. The largest of these communities is in Transylvania, Romania. The extraordinary opportunity for participants to experience Transylvania in a 7-day excursion immediately following the ReConnect Hungary trip is now a permanent offering. The whirlwind immersion uncovers the region’s natural beauty and the historical landmarks and living cultural traditions. Descending into the Salt Mines of Torda, meeting Hungarian decision-makers in Kolozsvár (Cluj), seeing the treasures of the Teleki Téka library in Marosvásárhely (Targu Mures), walking through a Székely gate—those who choose this program do and see just about everything!

ReConnect Transylvania

New Scholarship Opportunity for young adults in Transylvania.

It is an exciting opportunity for young adults to gain valuable work experience and also mentor local university students in Transylvania. The full scholarship covers transatlantic airfare, room, board and a stipend for the 3-6 month program.

The program empowers the participants in three ways:

Teaching: you mentor high school or university students informally by tutoring them in English and deepening their knowledge of American culture.

Interning: you gain invaluable, hands-on work experience by volunteering 25 hours a week at a nonprofit, each one with a different mission, and forming a network of professional contacts

Connecting: you have the opportunity to learn upfront and personal how other young Hungarians live; make life-long friends; and enrich your identity through Hungarian cultural immersion that simply is not possible elsewhere.
