The Center
for Citizenship Education (CCE)

We are a Polish not-for-profit organization committed to supporting schools. Our mission is to inspire school communities to adopt innovative teaching methods and introduce significant social issues to their work with students. Every year, we engage with 40,000 teachers and school principals from 10,000 schools across the country.


We successfully help school communities teach better. Students become more engaged in their education, develop a deeper understanding of global issues, and learn how to take action.


Our initiatives include:
– educational programs for teachers and school principals, aimed at addressing timely challenges,
– workshops for school boards, principals, and student councils,
– an accredited center for teaching excellence,
– an educational publishing house.


Established in 1994, we are the largest educational non-for-profit organization in Poland, operating independently as a public benefit organization under Polish law.

Our efforts and achievements have been widely recognized, including the honorary badge „For Merits to Education” of the Ministry of National Education and the title „Pro Publico Bono Institution” awarded in the competition organized under the honorary patronage of the Ombudsman.

Our mission


We support all students in gaining valuable school experiences. In this endavor we team up with teachers, school princiapls and young people because we believe that education needs an authentic change.


We aspire for mutual respect and partnership to serve as schools’ foundational principles, and for adults to design teaching process in recognition and appreciation of young people’s natural desire to learn.


Through our programs, we help schools become a place of shared learning, illustrating the power of civic participation and solidarity. We support schools in adopting practices that help young people find their life purpose, develop their passions, openness, and a sense of responsibility for the world we live in.

Our areas of activity

Programs that encourage all students to develop their competency in volunteering, self-governance, and entrepreneurship at school and in their community.

Programs in which school communities introduce active teaching methods and formative assessment, and develop teachers’ teamwork, thus changing the culture of work at schools.

Culture and media education programs that support teachers in developing critical thinking skills among students. The programs also encourage conscious participation in and contribution to cultural production.

Programs that help build good relationships in the classroom based on respect for diversity and help teachers address difficult topics with young people.  

Programs that explain the world of local, national, and European politics to young people and encourage them to become involved in public life.

Global and environmental education programs that explain to young people how the present world works, how to responsibly care for it, the environment, and each other.

Our vision of school


It equally builds the subjectivity of every student, expands their knowledge and develops their skills.


It approaches school experience holistically and cares about the wellbeing its school community: school principals, the teachers, and the students.


It supports students’ natural curiosity, their interests, and deep learning, rather than mechanical memorization and reproduction.  


It teaches through critical questioning and action, particularly through participation in educational projects.


It listens to and amplifies the voices of all students. It builds their social engagement and civic responsibility.  


It treats exams as an opportunity to celebrate students’ achievements, rather than as a founding purpose of school’s institutional existence.  


It deploys assessment to support students’ learning progress rather than to discipline and punish them.  


It works effectively as an institution, thanks to the expertise, commitment, and professionalism of its school principals and teachers. It gives school’s staff confidence and flexibility they need.
