INPRO was founded in 2014 in Rzeszów, the capital of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship, on the initiative of an international group of friends whose passions and goals merged in the implementation of joint activities. We are involved in the activities of the third sector, have experience as volunteers, coordinators of initiatives, and managing organizations. It is our experiences and passion that prompted us to establish our own association, which aims to promote international cooperation and build a community in which cultural diversity is a strength and inspiration.
Our work on various projects has convinced us that cultural diversity is not only a valuable source of inspiration but also significantly shapes our attitudes and views of the world around us. Our mission is to raise awareness of the value of international initiatives that contribute to the development of the local community.
Our initiatives focus primarily on personal development and education of young people from Rzeszów and the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. Through projects and workshops, we want to reach out to people not only from different cultures but also representing diversity in terms of age, beliefs, and faiths.
The association’s activities are not limited to formal educational programs; we also create an international community that provides space for individual development. We open up the community to dialogue on local, national, and international topics, as we believe that cultural diversity is a source of inspiration and an opportunity to get to know each other better.
Our organization also runs programs to integrate foreigners living in Rzeszów with the local community. This helps us build bridges between different cultures and helps create an integrated community. We are convinced that our work brings added value, contributing to opening up the residents of Rzeszów and the Podkarpackie Voivodeship to social and cultural diversity, building an integrated and open society.
We run youth exchange programs, international training and seminars for educators. We organize professional internship programs and exchange programs for foreign schools. We regularly visit schools, organize youth clubs, and socio-cultural meetings under the Open Café theme. Once a quarter, we organize youth information festivals. Moreover, we always engage in local events, exhibitions, picnics, and fairs. Our work is our passion, and we try to infect others with it!
Our headquarters are located in the heart of Rzeszów, in the main railway station building. We have a multifunctional space of 350m2, which includes our offices, a workshop room, a social area, and a hostel part with 7 rooms and 24 sleeping places.
We provide our guests with shared showers with toilets (female and male), a fully equipped kitchen, and unlimited internet access. We are delighted that our space can serve not only us but also other people who visit our city.
