Rogers Foundation for Person-centred Education

The Rogers Foundation for Person-Centred Education has been set up in 2005, and started its official activity in 2006. While originally our main goal was to maintain the Rogers Person-Centred Secondary School, as years have passed, the Foundation has scaled up to national and international level, and started to work in public- and adult education areas, as well as for youth issues and sustainability.

Based on Carl R. Rogers’s thoughts we believe that a person can understand and fulfil him or herself through living, personal experiences and in accepting relationships. Our mission is to ensure this accepting relationship to people, and to have people understand and become conscious about its importance. Also we would like to understand and prevent all barriers against building up these relationships. For this purpose, we organize and run educational, experiential activities, as well as organize researches, projects and services.

As a permanent educational institution we still maintain the successor of the Rogers Secondary School, the Rogers Academy, where young people looking for an alternative for traditional education can find their place. As a registered Talent Point, we also regularly organize talent development programs for school children as well as for young people.
Besides our permanent activities in the last thirteen years we have implemented more than 60 educational projects in different areas but with common approach: drama pedagogy, arts therapy, free play, game-based learning, emotional intelligence, systems thinking, leisure time pedagogy, talent development, e-learning, sustainability education, human rights and equal opportunities, youth inclusion, employability skills, health literacy and person-centred organizational development. We work with different target groups in these projects, including children & young people, young adults and adults as well.

We have a well-developed network of connections within Hungary. We are members of the Talent Assisting Network, the Council Assisting Talents with Special Needs, as well as the Rogersian person-centred network. We have signed strategic partnership agreement with the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE-TÓK).

Internationally by today we have worked together with more than 50 partner organizations from 26 countries of Europe, and we are members of international networks, such as the Real World Learning Network, Initiative for Equality, the European Network on Inclusive Education and Disability. We are also parts of the global Nature for All campaign.

Through our membership we are actively engaged in international youth and education policy, and participating in relevant calls and actions.

We really believe in quality work: some of the previous projects were selected as best practices at EU level:
- LLP-Leonardo Act your Job: (also chosen as a success story, and it got an Award of Excellence from the Hungarian National Agency, Tempus Közalapítvány)
- LLP-Comenius ELENA (Experiential Learning and Education for Nature Awareness): (also chosen as a success story)
- Erasmus+ project MYSTY ( MyStory: Digital Storytelling Toolbox for Diversity Training in Schools:
- Erasmus+ project NAURU Game for Democracy: It also got an ‘EduInspiracje Award’

By now we have been implementing altogether 24 Erasmus + and LLP projects either as partners or coordinators (in 4 cases).

We use all materials developed in our projects in our teacher training and adult education work: year by year we are training thousands of teachers or adult educators through our accredited training programmes.
