YGA’s field-based learning experience equals to the world’s top universities.
Our academy establishes strategic partnerships
with the world’s leading universities to conduct social innovation projects Both undergraduate and graduate students take roles in YGA’s social innovation
projects according to the scope of their own academic curriculum.
The projects are specially designed in accordance with the format and requirements of the relevant course for which the students continue to work in their own campus for 2-3 months. And every week, they have regular online meetings with the YGA team. At the end of the term, they are invited to Istanbul and work at the YGA office for 1-3 weeks.
When they are in YGA office, they collaborate with students from diverse areas including elementary schools, university fellows, visually impaired peers, Syrian refugees and the pupils under legal protection. They meet YGA Dream Partners within the framework of the Leadership Development Program and learn from their experiences. Upon the completion of the program, they present their work to YGA Advisory Board.
