We expect the participants from Istanbul to arrive to the Summit location with their own means. For candidates who will attend the Summit from cities outside Istanbul, YGA buses are organized from cities like Ankara, Izmir and Antalya every year based on the number of applications. Transportation plan for other cities is determined based on the number of participants from the respective cities. If there is no YGA Bus from your city, YGA covers your transportation cost to the nearest city with YGA Bus. For this, the bus ticket should be handed to us during the YGA Summit. The YGA Summit organization officers will call all candidates before the Summit and provide them the details.
A symbolic fee of TL 35 will be collected from the candidates qualified to attend the Summit. We dream you to have a small contribution to the expense items of such a comprehensive organization in this manner. The transportation costs of all participants outside Istanbul and the food costs of all participants are covered by YGA.
True, the fractional resource collected from 1,700 participants could have been collected with the sponsorship of one or few companies. However, while creating financial resources as YGA, our dream is not for two or three companies to provide these resources, but thousands and even millions of individuals to raise the required resource with smaller contributions. Thus, enabling much more people to partner in the efforts to create a better Turkey and a better World. However, another dream is to enable YGA to continue its projects independently.
First of all, we do not name our contributors as sponsors. The companies contributing to the YGA Summit are dream partner organizations and strategic partners of YGA that we had worked together in different projects. While creating financial resources as YGA, our dream is not for two or three companies to provide these resources, but thousands and even millions of individuals to raise the required resource with smaller contributions. Thus, enabling more people to partner in the efforts to create a better Turkey and a better World. However, the number of individuals that we had reached until today is not millions yet. On the other hand, the organization costs such as the venue prices, the transportation of almost 1500 students from the different spots in Turkey to Istanbul and the lunch of more than 2000 people require a huge budget. Thus, we take support from our strategic partner companies for the Summit expenses. Similarly, we take contribution fee of TL 35 from each candidate qualified to attend the Summit.
