Video about us:
Our organisation TRATWA exists almost for 17 years. One of the organisation’s mission is to create conditions of work suitable for vulnerable young people and to help with their social integration.
The EVS project will be based in DEPOT Centre of Intercultural Project in Wrocław. This is a special place on the map of Wroclaw because of the voluntary dimension. This is the most important meeting place for young people with a huge potential to organize youth exchanges, social events, concerts, theater performances, film screenings, workshops and other various events.
The Centre of Intercultural Project DEPOT (PPM ZAJEZDNIA) is an informal cultural center. There are two musical studies and music stage for concerts.
