Education Volunteers Foundation of Turkey will celebrate International Volunteer Day through conducting a conference on Youth and Volunteerism.

The Youth and Volunteerism Conference will be held on 3 December 2008. The event will be a one day conference and representatives from civil society, academia, media and our own volunteers will be invited. The aim of the conference is to create a platform where ideas and experiences about Youth and Volunteerism can be shared.

It is also aimed to bring all volunteers and staff of the Foundation together and provide them the opportunity to share their perspectives on volunteering.

The conference will consist of two sessions that will have different topics. The first session is Youth, Volunteerism and Social Capitalism; and second session is Contribution of Volunteerism in Professional Life.

Additionally, a survey will be taken on Youth, Volunteerism and Social Capitalism and the results will be shared.

The survey will be funded by the Volunteer Mentorship Program that has been carried out in partnership with the UNIDEA Foundation.
