YOUTHART mainly works with university students, and focuses on social activities trying to include youth with fewer opportunities into local and international activities through funds of the EU, especially Erasmus+ Programme.
YOUTHART has organized and been partner in dozens of training courses, seminars and youth exchanges since 2008. Thanks to the fact that we have a lot of active members as university students, so it will not be difficult for us to choose the best participants as possible in this event. Our participants have a good educational background and communicational skills although most of them come from rural areas and socially and economically disadvantaged areas of Turkey.
