The Hungarian Province of the Piarist Order has been operating the Kilátó Centre, an institution that has provided career guidance and labour market development in the city of Vác since 2018. The centre provides work diagnostics, career guidance and labour market services to young people who need special attention and care – with a particular focus on young people between 12 and 30 years of age with special educational needs. The Kilátó Centre also serves as an institution for methodological innovation, education, research and development. The main objective of the research and development process, launched in early 2017, was to develop services aimed at meeting the needs of the target groups, also building on results from prior research. The present paper introduces the primary principles, developmental stages and service activities that stem from the methodological and content development process. The institution operates with nearly 25 employees in 2020 and plays a unique role in the professional fulfilment of young people.
