Youth embracing change

2017: International Project’s Association INPRO is currently realizing its second EVS project “Youth embracing change”

The project “Youth embracing change” takes place in Rzeszów, Poland. The goal of the project is to develop interpersonal and intercultural competences among young people as well as among organizers of activities – volunteers themselves. Most of activities within the project takes place in Rzeszów Culture Incubator.

The volunteers are currently organizing weekly events which aim to educate young people about topics such as human rights, grassroots movements and controversial issues. The events also aim to create an international environment and a safe space to exchange ideas, opinions as well as making new friends.

Our main event is Open Cafè which takes place every Wednesday and lasts about two hours. Participants are involved in activities, games and discussions in English.

During the week our EVS volunteers also organize weekly public screenings of films and documentaries for educational purposes and completely free of charge.

Every Tuesday some of our volunteers go to the town of Lubaczów to host a language club with the youth council of the town hall. The project will last until July 2018.

Since July 2017, we have been hosting four EVS volunteers.
