Foundation of European Initiatives in Silesia

About FEIS

Who Are We?

We’re a youth NGO that’s all about civic education, volunteering, and getting young people active. We’ve been working for over 10 years to give youngsters in Bytom and all over Silesia a chance to join in on European mobilities and initiatives.

Our Mission

FEIS is all about broadening horizons, opening up young people to new opportunities for growth and education. We bring together, energize, and empower youth from Bytom and across Silesia.

How Do We Operate?

In recent years, we’ve focused on areas like civic democracy, social entrepreneurship, volunteering, fighting youth unemployment, and exploring regional identity. Since kicking off in 2010, FEIS has rolled out dozens of exchanges, training sessions, meetings, and campaigns for participants from across Europe. Right now, we’re all about youth exchanges, training youth workers, and workshops. In 2021, we scored an Erasmus+ Youth Accreditation from the National Erasmus+ Agency, letting us launch even more projects for young people.

What does FEIS consist of? 

The Foundation for European Initiatives in Silesia, in addition to activities under the name of FEIS, has also established units that specialize in specific activities:
