Our main objective refers to the sphere of the widely understood positive social change. We want to build a strong local community. Our priority is to provide activities for people facing and endangered by social exclusion – through sociotherapy, streetworking outreach, and animating the local community. We work with children, youth and adults. 

The activities of the volunteer will mainly take place in one of our active citizens’ centre called “Apteka” (eng. Pharmacy) in Gdynia Grabówek (the district of city). It is important for us to implement actions that would be a true response to needs of local community. We always adjust our 
activities to the current reality which transforms very fast.

Every volunteer coming to our foundation will go through three stages: observations, supporting and final initiating. Volunteer can help, among other, with:
-animating games with elements of streetworking outreach,
-facilitating cultural projects,
-organizing integration events,
-organizing workshops,
-consultancies for the residents,
-doing homework with children and teens,
-taking part in group meetings,
-office work,
-helping with organizing, planning and evaluating the integration and cultural events.

More information about the organziation can be found in the information attached.
