Who We Are?

What we do?

Founded in 2002, the Community Volunteers Foundation (TOG) acts on the principle of "Youth-led, adult-guided" and creates space for youth to realize projects that produce solutions to social problems by providing social responsibility trainings.

Why we do it?

TOG aims to contribute to the personal development of youth and believes that youth have the potential and energy to create solutions to social and environmental problems. TOG knows that youth whose potentials are recognized and whose talents and energies are supported in the right direction will improve society and trusts in the power of youth.

How we do it?

Community Volunteer youth, who come together as student clubs, societies or groups at universities in all provinces of Turkey, carry out activities that create social benefit by producing projects on many themes ranging from children's rights to culture and arts, from ecology to health, from animal rights to sustainable living. TOG provides social responsibility trainings to youth and supports them to realize their projects. It also contributes to their education and future dreams with scholarships and mentoring support.


To ensure social peace, solidarity and change through the leadership of youth and guidance of adults.


To contribute to the formation of a self-confident, entrepreneurial and sensitive youth who can produce solutions to the problems around them by implementing various social responsibility projects.
