In this venue, people with disabilities who have been excluded from mainstream educational opportunities have the chance to get education in various fields such as painting, rhythm, instrumental training, dj, drama, photography, sculpture, ceramic, personal development, sign language as well as sports education such as scuba diving, swimming, sailing, canoeing, boat skipping, trekking, various outdoor trainings, yoga and pilates, etc.
Within the facility, trainers in the above fields are needed as volunteers, as well as to take up structural and operational tasks such as farming, gardening and animal husbandry, cooking, painting, renovation works, driving, etc. Additionally, volunteers are expected to work with the project management crew in various topics such as translations, filing, planning and social media. Volunteers can choose one of these fields, however multitasking is highly appreciated.

Language: English. Turkish classes can be arranged upon request.
Duration of the project: Duration of the volunteer placement is up to 3 months.
Volunteers who are willing to work with and for disabled people are welcome. Please be aware that the center is open all year but disabled people mainly will be there between April 1 – October 30. Thus you should consider their absence if you are willing to come out of these dates and sometimes even within these days.
