Mission and Objectives: 

PRONI Center for Social Education is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 as a legal entity in the Republic of Croatia. Special attention in our work is given to young people, respecting differences in ethnical background, religion, culture, gender and race. PRONI Center works in Croatia, with special focus on post-war regions where the strong need for societal reconstruction is present. In its work, PRONI is using experiences and examples of positive practices from the EU, as well as is developing cooperation with less developed countries in this sense (primarily neighborhood countries) where Croatian experiences can help their society development. PRONI works with young people, civil society organizations and responsible authorities using an integrated developmental approach in the fields of education, youth work and policy development. PRONI is striving to encourage cooperation and understanding between people. PRONI wants to enable young people to take responsibilities for themselves and for development of the society they are part of, in which their needs are recognized and responded to at all levels.

Main Projects / Activities: 

We provide free advice, informationa and education to organisations of civil society and active individuals. We implemented Youth employment support project, and we are running Regional info-centre for youth Osijek, Info-cntre for youth Vukovar and Info-point for youth Sisak. We implemented a research on parent involvement and society development in Vukovar. We educated children in primary schools about EU. One of our core projects in the past was two-year university education for youth and community leaders, in partnership with School of education and communication, University of Jonkoping, Sweeden.
