Empowering You(th)-II
Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

We are Abdullah Gul University and we decided to put "Youth" in the core of our university. Different from other Universities, AGU defines itself as a "third generation" University, puts emphasize to "social impact" with its rich educational and research background. AGU has just established a youth work structure, which is unique with its approach, within the University. Our aim is to involve young people in the core of our structure. Therefore, one of our main step is to have EVS volunteers in our team and establish long term international cooperation within the youth structure. As AGU, we designed the project to empower you and youth. Volunteers will develop their own capacities and competences by non-formal learning and through their service they will also empower young people of Kayseri. Moreover, volunteers will organize information meetings, seminars and conferences in the university and city to empower young people. We are going to host 2 volunteers from United Kingdom for 10 months in Kayseri, Turkey between the dates September 2015 till July 2016. Young people with social, educational and economical disadvantages will be our first choice to involve in our project and these volunteers will be actively involved in the empowerment of other disadvantaged young people in a different country with different background and problems and we are planning to achieve the empowerment for the volunteers themselves through helping others. We believe that this will result as their future participation in their local community. The project will prove that volunteering will be used as an inclusion and empowerment tool for these kind of disadvantaged young people and same approach will be encouraged for other organizations to implement in their projects as well.
