CIVIL SOCIETY CAPACITY BUILDING
Our association, which carries on capacity building activities for civil society organisations that are active on the field of youth, produces and apply projects, and builds partnerships. It also ascertains deficiencies of the civil society organisations (NGO- Non-governmental organisation) and tries to fill these deficiencies.
TECHNOLOGY BASED DEVELOPMENT
For development, economic capacity should also be increased. This is a problem which can be solved by improving service or products with high added values. We are carrying out activities to develop the society in which the youth lives with high added values technology products/services.
A healthy society consists of healthy individuals. In order to guarantee the society health in the future, the youth should be provided to have a positive manner and behaviour about a healthy life. For the purpose of contribution, Pi Youth Association carries out projects about this topic, too.
TIME FOR VOLUNTEERING
While Pi Youth Association tries to involve more youngsters to civil society works and make volunteering more common escpecially among youngsters, it also carries out several awareness-raising and disemination activities in order to keep the volunteering sustainable. Time for volunteering is about how many hours you take part in voluntary work in a week.
SOCIAL MEDIA ANALYSIS
Recent fast development in technology has led to emerge the concept of social media. Now, social media is so common that it has become a field which exercises influnce over the youth for 24 hours. Hence, it has a big effect on the youngsters. This field, where they can reach anything in an easy and fast way, is a kind of field that each institution working on youth activities should have knowledge about it.
THE YOUTH RIGHTS AND PROBLEMS
Education, access to information, minority youngsters, young women, disabled youngsters, the youth rights, the youth problems, the youth policy being in the first place, particularly for the disadvantaged ones among 15-30 years old, any kind of projects, activities and events are in Pi Youth Association’s line.
