Smokinya Foundation serves as a learning platform for individuals who are ready to commit to their own learning and development needs. We create opportunities and provide space for people to learn, contribute and grow by participation, volunteering and project leadership.

We are a community of people from different backgrounds (humanities and arts, science, business, marketing, and IT). And in Smokinya Foundation we are united by a common vision, common values, common principles and desire to support.

Smokinya Foundation realizes its vision and values through youth work. Youth work for us is providing contexts and playground for exploration and discovery of the inner spirit of youth that individuals, groups and organizations posses. From this point many outcomes are possible on different levels and in different areas. And we do that in a playful manner.

Our approach is heuristic – a method for empowering a person to discover or learn something for themselves. This is an alternative to traditional education approaches. It is playful and we provide place, playground and support so that you can develop embodied, long-lasting and transferable competences.
That way your gained knowledge, skills and values serve you in a better way.

If all that seems, sounds and feels like what you have been looking for, there’s only one more step before you join us. That is to read, understand and contact and share which area attracts you the most.
