About this grant
The project goals are to encourage youth engagement in community development and stimulate local philanthropy in Turkey. The Community Volunteers Foundation supports the further development of YouthBank—a model for youth-led, community-based grantmaking—in Turkey. This grant increase will support the grantee to organize an international conference of YouthBank practitioners from Turkey, the Black Sea region, and Central/Eastern Europe. The conference will further enhance the skills and capacities of Turkish YouthBank practitioners by networking them with their peers in the wider region and building a support network that will last beyond the project period.
