Independence education centre "Kitaip"

"A.C. Patria" area of ​​self-education has existed since 2007, when employees started organizing camps and experiential trips for young people growing up or growing up in care homes. We noticed that the young people quickly forget the impressions and knowledge gained during the trips when they return to the care home. Then 2009 The Independence Education Center “Kitaip” was established in 2006. It consisted of accompanying accommodation (accommodation) and a counseling center (individual counseling, escort handling documents, employment, outbound activities, etc.).


We are proud of our work

Principles of our activity

A relationship based on trust and openness

We respect the stories and difficulties of young people. The young person is usually accompanied on the path of independence by one employee, who communicates with him / her, consults in case of difficulties, helps the young person to grow and strengthen as a personality.

Consistent, continuous, individual-oriented accompaniment of the young person

Empowering the young person

A young person is trying to overcome the challenges himself. The staff helps, is nearby, reinforces, shows, explains, but does not do the work for the young individual.

The purpose of the center is to provide assistance to 16-29 year olds. to a young person growing up or growing up in care. "Kitaip" employees prepare young people for independent living. Helps to acquire social and communication skills, invites to try oneself in new activities (experiential hike, initiatives, training, apprenticeship, etc.). Helps to find and stay in an educational institution, a job.
