Since the biggest problem of the youth is unemployment, it has aimed to support their employment, to increase their productivity, to support the emergence of entrepreneurial abilities, if any, to carry out voluntary work with disadvantaged groups and to support these efforts over the past years.
The center has meeting rooms where young people can come together and a computer laboratory that they can use free of charge. Young people who want to use the cafe section have the opportunity to study easily here and can benefit from the kitchen in the cafe section.
