The Civic Enterprises Association (Civil Vállalkozások Egyesület) was established 9 years ago with the mission to launch the Senior Mentor Program (SMP) the aim of which is to offer new opportunities for Hungarians over 55 years of age to become active citizens through educational activities.

The Senior Mentor Program is a movement that trains elderly adults to become mentors and brings them into public elementary schools to improve academic achievement of students, through one-to-one tutoring, small group academic help and assisting teachers. During the past 10 academic years 36 service sites have been set up and are currently being operated by SMP in Hungary and in Slovakia.

This Program aims to solve serious social problems, beginning with literacy and social exclusion. Throughout the activities performed the senior volunteers become adult learners themselves while helping younger generations with their studies. Today more than 100 individual members serve as tutors and mentors to children in urban public schools and after-school programs, where they help teach children to read and develop the confidence and skills to succeed in school and in life.

By September 2016 more than four thousand senior citizens applied for corps member positions. After the capital we successfully set up new volunteer teams in thirteen cities in western, southern, eastern and northern regions of Hungary and three cities in Slovakia. We started to recruit volunteers in cities under twenty thousand residents as well in order to provide service in more disadvantaged areas.

Our goal is to become one of the largest not-for-profit service programs in Hungary. Our vision for 2020 is that the number of Senior Mentor Program corps members shall increase to 500, and the number of schoolchildren served shall increase to 3000. The scope of Senior Mentor Program shall embrace 100 public elementary schools. In addition, we shall launch pilot projects in other Central and Eastern European Countries.
