What is YGA?

YGA’s dream is to discover future leaders and to cultivate them as “socially conscious leaders” through field experience.

YGA Leadership Program starts with YGA Summit held in Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar ICEC. 2000 university students, who are selected among 50.000 candidates that applied to YGA via internet, attend to the Summit every year. The second round application forms submitted by the attendants just after the Summit are delicately evaluated by YGA Advisory Board, which consists of academicians, multinational company executives and entrepreneurs. Selected 750 candidates are interviewed at YGA regional hubs in five major cities of Turkey: İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Bursa ve Adana. As a result of 4- stage interview, 250 YGA leaders that will take part in “ YGA leadership ateliers” are discovered and raised. At 150 YGA leadership ateliers established in disadvantaged elementary school across 45 cities of Turkey, YGA members weekly volunteer for cultivating socially responsible leaders of the future. Every year 5.000 “stars”, who are selected among 100.000 elementary school students, graduate from YGA Program.
