Youth is Today and the Future…
Any order you don’t nurture with the younger generation cannot be sustainable. For successful social sustainability, the youth you will entrust your future should be able to bear this responsibility. Therefore; families, companies, governments… all invest in their young people in order to sustain their future with success. They want them to be healthier, educated, qualified and equipped. As an addition to that; young people are an unreplaceable and indispensable mass for society not only for the future but also for today. They have rights and problems that they cannot obtain because of their young age. For example; Until a few years ago, in our country, young people had the right to vote in general and local elections, but not the right to be elected. This was a violation of rights for young people. With the new legal regulations, the age of being elected was reduced from thirty to twenty-five and then to eighteen, thus eliminating a violation of rights in the youth field. This and many other examples are some of the rights problems that young people face because of their age, although not recognized by the youth and the rest of society. In short, age discrimination is still a problem in some areas. When we deal with youth problems, such as youth rights, some problems specific to youth continue to have serious negative consequences. For example, youth unemployment, youth access to information and education are some of the most common youth problems of our time.
All of the above-mentioned examples have made it necessary for us to operate in the field of youth rights and problems and this has created a need to bring together and empower young people to solve these problems. Pi Youth Association is a non-governmental organization established for the rights and the problems that should be solved for the individuals that it represents which means young people between the ages of 15-30. The power needed to carry out its activities is again taken from the young people whose rights are defended by the association. Pi Youth Association, which works with young people for young people, has organized many projects, trainings and activities since its establishment on March 14, 2014 to fulfil this mission. The most important source of income of our association, which continues its activities in local, national and international fields, is grants and supports received from European Union and other international organizations (UN etc.).
The Pi Youth Association conducts activities on six topics of study, in consultation with young people. These study topics are:
1) Youth Rights and Problems
2) Volunteering Hours
3) Technology Based Development
4) Healthy Lifestyle
5) Civil Society Capacity Building (for youth organizations only)
6) Social Media Analysis
We believe that the more active individuals (citizens) our young people are today, and in the future, the better our present and future will be. For this reason, we say that Pi Youth Association activates the potential…
