Partnership

aktiF-İz Youth Community is an informal youth group founded in 2011. Since then, we implemented many projects for young people with fewer opportunities (orphans, young people with disabilities, and people with social disabilities), vulnerable groups, university students and volunteers in the civil society field. Our target group is youth. We aim to help youth who are lack of opportunities to improve themselves and bring positive change to the world. We organize youth projects, campaigns, and activities mostly through non-formal education methods in order to raise awareness and encourage different youth groups to involve in solutions to the problems. We cooperate with youth-led organizations and other relevant institutions working in the youth field.

The themes of the projects that we implemented and are experienced are;

-Youth(participation, policies, employment)

-Social/Entrepreneurship

-Refugees

-Digital Skills

-Social Responsibility
