About the Project
Numerous young people in Turkey are involved in civil society, but not many of their ideas get professionally implemented and disseminated. One reason for that is the lack of opportunity with regard to qualifications: current courses, scholarships, and educational opportunities for young people in Turkey are generally concentrated in the large urban centers. Small initiatives outside of large cities do not have the necessary access to these opportunities, and, at the same time, there is a lack of networking between the young people and established organizations.
The objective of the Tools for Citizens program is to close these gaps - to reinforce the work of young people involved in civil society outside of the Turkish metropolises through qualification and networking.
