Youth Programs

The Youth Programs primarily aim at well-educated and promising foreign students aged between 18-30 to have an opinion about the relations between Turkey and their own countries. At each program, delegations invited from a different county, consisting of a total 35 persons, are hosted in Istanbul and Ankara for one week. A special attention is paid to ensure that the participants are coming from diverse backgrounds in terms of profession, political tendency, and religion.

With this program, it is aimed to create awareness about the active role that Turkey plays in the world and in the region, to initiate discussions on developments at different parts of the world, and to establish a common social-cultural-political agenda.

The goal of the program is to provide the opportunity for the young guests to visit different Turkish agencies and get first-hand information of their activities as well as presenting in-depth information about the historical and touristic places of Turkey.
