In 2014, a group of worldly-minded friends joined forces to establish INPRO in the charming city of Rzeszów, the heart of the Podkarpackie region in Poland. Driven by a shared passion for collaboration and a commitment to making a global impact, INPRO aims to showcase the added value and progress international initiatives bring to community development. Annually, 500 young people benefit from our programs, including Erasmus+ youth exchanges, training courses, vocational traineeship projects, and short and long-term volunteering within the European Solidarity Corps.
