Turkish Volunteer Programs
Love Volunteers offers placements for much-needed volunteers in Istanbul, Turkey. Volunteers will be given the chance to work with Syrian Refugees, assist with teaching and education projects, and support wonderful agricultural programs in this fascinating country.
Often, a stint spent volunteering provides the perfect gap year transition before launching on a university degree. Equally, volunteering can fill a break between jobs or career, as it can be the ideal way to gain a new perspective on life or to re-examine one’s value. There is no doubt that volunteering offers the chance to savor a different culture and to engage with people who genuinely need the support volunteers’ can provide.
Volunteering in Turkey is both challenging and rewarding. Its many different indigenous groups, unsettled economy and lack of state-provided facilities have meant that the more marginalized inhabitants of the country suffer various forms of deprivation. Enriching the lives of such people is what volunteering in Turkey is about. Being in Turkey also provides an excellent opportunity to experience their world-famous cuisine!
Turkey is a country known for its color, crowds, festivities and noise. The volunteer projects are located in and around Istanbul (historically known as Constantinople and Byzantium), the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural, and historic center. This is a truly amazing location to volunteer!
