About INEX Slovakia
INEX Slovakia is a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity for young people of different national and cultural backgrounds to live and work together. Our vision represents active people with a good selfesteem, tolerance, critical thinking, general overview and willingness to help. Our mission is to help young people in their personal development through international volunteering, nonformal education and valuable spending of their free time. Main aim of volunteering activities is to provide help to the local community or to any project necessary, e.g. social, environmental, renovation, cultural etc. Activities are focused on the youth mobility and the nonformal education.
We organize various voluntary activities including International voluntary workcamps, weekend workcamps, activities within the European Solidarity Corps Programme and free time activities for children and people with special needs. We are very much involved in various educational activities, such as trainings, workshops, study parts. Promoting volunteering and raising its awareness, being part of its development and international recognition is also our work.
