Ten Years of Youth Leadership and Service: YES Alumni Workshop


Join the "Ten Years of Youth Leadership and Service: YES Alumni Workshop" in Istanbul, Turkey this Thursday, September 19th - Sunday, September 22nd!

The YES Alumni Istanbul Workshop is a three-day professional development training that supports the community service activities and grassroots projects of YES alumni from 31 YES countries. There are four workshop themes – Conflict Transformation, Digital Journalism, Educational Activism and Environmental Activism – which are led by experts in their fields from around the YES world. The themes also reflect projects that alumni have initiated over the years. Alumni also receive Project Design and Management Training.  The three days will be full of learning, growth and new experiences as YES alumni develop ideas to take home to their countries and communities.

100 alumni from 31 different YES countries will be attending the conference this weekend. Are you part of the YES community, but are not going to Istanbul? No problem! Join virtually during one of the scheduled Livestream sessions:
