András Nyirati


WAR WILL NEVER BE THE SEED Of PEACE! I agree with Gandhi about non-violence. I agree with Mandela that sometimes there is no other way, but violence. I agree with Bob Marley, get up, stand up for your rights. I agree sometimes with Che Guevara, but I don't think that the end justifies the means. In some things I agree with, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad but I don't believe in God.
I'm a father, a husband, a friend and also an NGO leader, a human rights trainer. For more, check my profile :)

Work experience

I started my ‘professional career’ at Amnesty International Hungary as a volunteer at the age of 23. I worked as campaign coordinator assistant in ‘Control Arms’ campaign on Sziget Festival 2005 and campaign coordinator in ‘Urgent Action Save Darfur’ on Sziget Festival 2006. At that time I also helped to create a local Amnesty group in the city of Pécs. At AI I gained experience about campaigning, awareness raising and volunteer programs and started to work with human rights issues.
I worked 3 years for the main youth organization in the city of Pécs and Baranya county, as community developer. My roles were mainly animation at youth clubs (and summer camps, youth festivals, etc.) and facilitation of workshops (trainings, etc.) for youth leaders and youth workers. My educational work started here.
After Amnesty and in parallel with the youth organization from Pécs, I created (and became head of the board) With the power of humanity Foundation with some high-school and university friends. This NGO aims to strengthen solidarity and social cohesion, mainly with human rights education and equal opportunities support programs for young people. Beside the human rights educational work as a facilitator/trainer, I have been the person in charge for the organization, so I have collected experience in financial management, fundraising, organizational management, project management, volunteer management, etc. for the last 7 years.
I gained experience in international youth work and Youth in Action also. I organized youth exchanges, youth initiatives and trainings. I worked as a trainer in youth exchanges, trainings and a youth democracy project. I’ve been an EVS mentor and my NGO is an accredited host organization for EVS. I worked for Mobilitás Youth Service, the Hungarian National Agency for YiA as a educational assistant in the South-Trans Danubia region and later as a free-lance trainer. Since 2012 I am working as assessor for YiA (1.1, 1.2, 3.1, 4.3) in Hungary
For the last year I’ve had a part time job at the Hungarian Equal Opportunities Network, at the office called House of Opportunities in Pécs. This has been giving some experience about social inclusion from a new side, from policy making, coordination and cooperation between different sectors.

Educational pathway

My endless journey to become a human rights trainer started when I quit university, where I studied history. For some years I turned my face to non-formal education. In 2009 I thought I can choose better than before, so I started university again, since then I’ve been studying social pedagogy.
2007 was the year of collecting the basics and find my special interest. I attended Human Rights Education training for multipliers (Amnesty International Hungary), ‘Let every voice be heard’ Compass training (Mobilitás Youth Service), ‘Step into colorful societies’ long term training course (YiA 3.1) and ‘Fruitcakes’ Peer training tools tackling gender based discrimination and homophobia in youth environments (European Peer Training Organisation – EPTO).
2008 was the year of going deeper, in theories, in practice and in myself. I participated in ‘Eastern Twister’ training for trainers in the field of tolerance in East-Europe (EPTO), Coaching in youth work (Mobilitás Youth Service TCP), Non-formal learning (Mobilitás Youth Service), Compass Advanced Training for Trainers (European Youth Centre Budapest, Mobilitás Youth Service) and Psychodrama basic self experience (Hungarian Psychodrama Society).
2009 was the year of discovering new fields, border territories. ‘TACEP’ Training for Active Citizenship in the EU Enlargement Process (Local Democracy Agency Osijek), Youthpass and recognition of non-formal learning (Mobilitás Youth Service), Developing and operating youth community spaces (Mobilitás Youth Service) and Effects of domestic violence on children (Women For Women Association - NANE).
Since then I mostly develop myself with learning by doing, beside that I often attend on workshops and conferences.
