Norman Davies ”Poland in the Rockies hit on exactly the right formula.”
Andrew Nagorski – Newsweek ”If a program like this had been offered at the time when I was a student, I’m sure I would have jumped at the opportunity.”
Stan Oziewicz – Globe & Mail ”I’ve been to many conferences; this is the first that will stay with me forever.”
Katherine – Chicago ”I deepened my understanding of my heritage, forged new and lasting friendships, and was inspired to carry out academic research in Warsaw, Poland.”
Martin – Toronto ”PITR brings together some of the brightest and most talented young Polish-Canadians and engages them in a unique experience of knowledge, interaction and the exquisite surroundings of the majestic Rocky Mountains”
Nina – Washington ”PITR set me on my path for my career… opened up a whole new world to me that sent me to graduate school to study the post communist world and landed me at a job in the international affairs community, focusing on democracy assistance… I have contacts all over the globe ready to support my work. I grew as a person, a thinker and a friend.”
Judith – Cape Town ”I’m a slightly more uncommon PITR attendee – being neither Polish, nor an official student of the language, the country or the people. Call it an exercise in empathy-making and community-building, if you will; PITR connected me to a community of people dotted all around the globe whose common ancestry, language or location continue to intrigue me.”



Sponsor a student

This level of sponsorship entitles you to the following:

By sponsoring a student you are not just ensuring a once in a lifetime learning opportunity for a young person from your community. You are sending an ambassador and setting the foundation for a relationship between your organization and the sponsored student.

Here is how it works.

By choosing the sponsorship option you will have direct input into selecting the student. Providing they meet the established PitR admission criteria, student sponsors can nominate a particular student from their community and this will considerably increase their chance of being chosen.

If an organization does not have a particular student in mind, they will be paired with a qualified student from their community. Sponsored students will have the following duties towards the sponsor:

• 10 hours of volunteer time to the organization

• Deliver a presentation about this organization during a special session at PitR

• Report back to the organization following the event

• Sponsors will also receive two tickets to the Gala dinner * and recognition similar to what is offered in the Bronze package

* NOTE - Regional alternatives available for all packages
