You might be asking, what is this RIK and what has it got to do with this website? Firstly, RIK stand for the Rakoczi Ifjusagi Klub. We are the only Hungarian Youth Club in Melbourne and our main objective is to create unity among the Hungarian youth all over Melbourne. We do this by running events and functions which attempt to bring together young Hungarians in a safe and relaxed environment. RIK is based at the Hungarian Community Centre here in Melbourne (Magyar Haz) and most of our events and functions are organized there.
We represent the whole Hungarian Youth community. Our goals and objectives are to provide you (the member) a sense of belonging in the community. To bring together all of the Hungarian Youth and give each and every one of you incentive and pride to be who you are, Hungarian. That fundamental characteristic that we share is the strong point of our purpose. However, don’t be mislead and think that RIK is only open to Hungarians. It is open to everyone who is like-minded and enjoys being a part of this community.
RIK is a non-profit organisation meaning that all it’s Committee Members and helpers create these events and functions without asking for anything in return. We recieve pure gratitude by seeing fellow Hungarians enjoy themselves and hearing about their great experiences at our events.
All money and proceeds ultimately go back to you. The money we ask of you is to simply cover our expenses and help us to organise the next event. Proceeds accumulated are used to create facilities that you can use. For example, the RIK Club Room. RIK is still quite a young club. Through out this year and coming years we will only get bigger and our benefits will also become bigger and better. Tell us what you would like! This is your club!
