We are a Polish non-governmental organization committed to supporting schools. Our mission is to provide them with inspiration to adopt innovative teaching methods and introduce significant social issues to their work with youth.
Our initiatives include:
– educational programs for teachers and headteachers, aimed at addressing current challenges,
– workshops for school boards, student councils and headteachers, to develop new skills,
– an accredited center for teaching excellence,
– an educational publishing house.
We are the largest educational NGO in Poland, operating independently as a public benefit organization under Polish law.
Since we were founded in 1994, we have been repeatedly awarded for our activities and achievements, including the honorary badge „For Merits to Education” of the Ministry of National Education and the title „Pro Publico Bono Institution”.
We support all students in gaining valuable school experiences. We cooperate with teachers, headteachers, as well as children and young people, because we believe that education needs change.
We would like mutual respect and partnership to be present in all schools and for adults to perceive and appreciate 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.
