About us

Orbis Institute is a NGO that focuses on education and personal development especially of young people. As part of our educational programs, we lead people to leadership, civic engagement and participation in public affairs.
We put our energy into local and international education programs for people from different social groups. In our work, we try to overcome the geographical, cultural, ideological and religious frontiers. Within our programs, we focus, but not exclusively, on leadership.
Orbis Institute also serves as an "incubator" and thus contributes to higher public engagement. It serves active members, friends and community citizens as a platform for implementing nonprofit projects. Orbis Institute has thus supported a number of projects and independent organizations, not only in Slovakia but also in different countries.
The theme of activation and engagement of people is very closely related to the theme of leadership, which is an essential part of it.
Since the very beginning Orbis Institute has been devoted to the theme Leadership, searching for leaders and their development  and  has been integrating it into almost all of its projects.
Under the aegis of the organization, programs have been created on four continents in seven countries and indirectly with the help of partners in more than twenty countries. Orbis Institute has worked with more than fifty partners from public and private organizations from different countries on four continents. Since 2002, our programs have affected young people in more than 40 countries.
Orbis Institute is based in two countries - USA (Denver, Colorado) and Slovakia (Bratislava).
