Who come to us as a part of European voluntary service?

The "Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre" Centre is the host organization for international volunteers from 2004. This is the result of cooperation between the Centre and the organization “The Action Reconciliation Service for Peace" (Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste – ASF), enrolling the volunteers in Germany and in Ukraine, who want to take part in the projects connected to the educational and historical issues of the Second World War and the conseqeences of National Socialism.

There appears new people from France and Germany who want to discover Lublin on one's own initiative, the history of Lublin and activity of the Centre. We are happy, volunteers come to us from Israel, who take part in working of the Centre and research the history of Jewish Lublin.

What do our volunteers do?

Our volunteers are participants of the Programm European Voluntary Service (EVS)  funded by  the European Comission within Young Erasmus +. When volunteers came to the Centre, they have possibility to take part in the realization current projects and become a support in the realization their own initiatives. Staying during few months in Lublin is an example of multiculturalism for the both sides and the source of inspiration for current initiatives in the Centre.
