Receiving Organization
GSM-Youth Services Centre Association is a youth NGO established by a group professional youth worker and youth leaders, who have voluntary service and volunteering background. GSM’s objectives are to promote volunteering and voluntary service both on national and international level; to contribute in youth policy development both on national and international level; to raise awareness among young people about active participation; to prevent discrimination, racism and xenophobia and to enable young people to actively participate in decision making processes and civil life. In order to achieve these objectives GSM organizes international youth events, projects, training courses, exchanges and voluntary workcamps.GSM-Youth Services Centre Association believes in that volunteering is a strong educational tool for young people, and at the same time an alternative factor of local development. Therefore as one of the main aim, GSM promotes volunteering across Europe, develops new tools to be used, and organizes short term voluntary projects aiming to offer learning possibilities for all young people and promote active youth participation and sustainable local development. GSM accepts volunteering as a right for every young people without considering any religion, political view, race, gender, culture and language. Volunteering is a must for efficient and sustainable youth policy on national and international level. So it is important for GSM, as a youth organization, to create and to provide space for young people in order to enable them to experience the volunteering not only in Turkey but also in Europe, which will have a positive impact on their lives. In addition, GSM believes in that international volunteers are the cultural ambassadors to create bridges between societies and to increase the cultural dialogue among them. In any international activities, exchanges, voluntary workcamps that GSM organizes, it is important to include youth and voluntary aspect therefore for GSM the volunteers especially young volunteers are very important. In that sense European Voluntary Service will be another important tool for GSM to achieve its objectives. GSM will create spaces for international volunteers between the age of 18 and 30 and will support them with the projects which will enable them to improve themselves in theoretical and practical ways. Beside all the volunteers participating in EVS projects of GSM will have a chance to experience professional skills such as organizing an event, creating youth projects, having dialogue with different societies, project cycling management. In the future they will be able to use these skills in their professional lives. In addition the volunteers will have the chance to experience youth work, youth projects in the field by learning by doing aspect. This process will also eliminate any negative prejudices and increase cultural dialogue.
