About us

MOST Association is a dynamic non-profit organization based in Katowice, operating for years for the benefit of the local and regional community. Our mission is based on building bridges of understanding, social integration, and supporting individuals in difficult life situations. We believe in the power of solidarity and cooperation, which are the foundation of our activities. From the very beginning of our operations, we have focused on a diversity of actions and initiatives that have a real impact on the lives of our region’s residents. Our projects encompass a wide range of activities, starting from education and vocational training through social activation to support seniors, children, and youth. We organize workshops, training sessions, integration meetings, cultural, sports, and recreational events that foster social integration and develop the passions and interests of our beneficiaries. We take pride in our achievements, which have inspired us to continue our work for years.

We support the local community and non-governmental organizations by implementing various projects, including the „Non-Governmental Organizations Center,” „Social Integration Center,” „Youth Activity Center,” and „Seniors! We Act!” These projects focus on different age groups and their needs. Thanks to the involvement of our members, volunteers, and local partners, we can effectively respond to the changing needs of the community. Our projects not only bring individual benefits but also contribute to building a stronger and more integrated society. In our work, we are guided by the principles of honesty, commitment, and respect for every person. We aim to be a place where everyone can find support, understanding, and opportunities for development, regardless of age, origin, or life situation. MOST Association is not just an organization but, above all, a community of people who strive together to build a better future for all.
