Title: Etablovanie Zemského ústredia pečlivosti o mládež v Bratislave a jeho okresných pobočiek v medzivojnovom
(Establishment of the Regional Youth Care Centre in Bratislava and its district institutions in interwar Czechoslovakia)
Abstract: Social care for children and youth in Slovakia achieved significant progress in the interwar period. Behind it is the activity of the Regional Youth Care Centre in Bratislava, which began to take shape in the late 1920s, and was officially established in 1930. It became an umbrella institution for District Youth Care, which arose in an evolutionary way in Slovak districts a few for years earlier. The establishment of the Centre and its district branch offices were gradual and they had to fight people´s mistrust, lack of co-workers and insufficient financial resources. The Regional Youth Care Centre overcame initial obstacles and became the main organizer of voluntary care for children and youth in Slovakia and continued its activities even after the destruction of the Czech-Slovak Republic.
