About FEIS

Who we are?
We support young people in the areas of volunteering, building a civil society and non-formal education through local and international activities. As the Foundation for European Initiatives in Silesia, we also have the Erasmus+ Youth Accreditation.

What is our mission?
We focus primarily on broadening horizons and activating young people, as well as supplementing their education in areas that the formal education system neglects.

How are we doing?
First of all, the most important thing for us is cooperation with young people! Thanks to it, we carry out various activities in the fields of: local democracy, social entrepreneurship, civic education, promotion of regional identity and volunteering. Since 2010, when the FEIS Foundation started its activity, it has carried out dozens of exchanges, trainings, meetings and actions for participants from all over Europe. Through active action, under the Erasmus+ program, we have obtained the Erasmus+ Youth Accreditation, awarded by the Erasmus+ National Agency. Thanks to the accreditation, we are able to implement even more projects aimed at 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:

Jan Łaski Law Institute

Institute of Law Jan Łaski was established to act in the field of legal education of the society, primarily in the field of disseminating legal awareness, popularizing the use of legal protection measures and compliance with the legal order in everyday activities. The Institute focuses on the practical application of law.
