With its efforts located mainly in it’s capital Vilnius, Lithuania is home to one of our most active Ignitus sites. This site operates out of a youth centre that focuses on after school activities for youth in the area, promoting a safe place for youth to hang out, further their education, anti-violence and drug prevention initiatives. This site continues to work hard to help youth develop the necessary personal and social skills to be leaders in their community, help them with overcoming hardships such as poverty, lack of proper health care and limited access to education, as well as conflict resolution.

This site is operated by Tatjana Černiavskienė, a Police Officer in Vilnius County, serving as Lithuania’s Ignitus advisor and a role model for all of its youth members.
