INTEGRATION LEISURE / VOLUNTARY PROGRAMS FOR FOREIGNERS

 

Integration leisure/volunteer programs for foreigners are organized by the Nitra Community Foundation in cooperation with four partner non-profit organizations in Nitra.

Each organization created a free, three-month leisure/volunteer program that will help foreigners to learn about Slovak culture and better understand the social context of our community. These programs also help foreigners to create new contacts and grow friendships, which are essential to achieving social inclusion.
