Students from more than 100 universities from all around Turkey attended the YGA Summit of last year. Our door is open to all young individuals, who have self-esteem but no ego, and want to partner in YGA's dream.
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. For explaining the details before the YGA Summit, the organization team will reach all candidates on their mobile phone.
The participants will need to pay a small fee of 35 TL. In this way, you will also contribute to the organization of such an extensive event with many expense items. The transportation costs of all participants outside Istanbul and the food costs of all participants are covered by YGA.
Above all, our contributors are not defined as sponsors. The companies contributing to the YGA Summit are dream partner organizations and strategic partners of YGA that we work together in various projects. While YGA is raising funds, our dream is to ensure that thousands and even millions of individuals help to raise the required resource with smaller contributions rather than a few big companies funding the entire amount. Thus, we aim to involve more people in the efforts to create a better Turkey and a better World. Yet, the number of individuals that we have reached so far is not a million yet. On the other hand, the organization requires a huge budget including the venue prices, transportation of nearly 1500 students from various cities to Istanbul and the lunch for over 2000 people. Thus, we take support from our strategic partner companies for the Summit expenses. We also take contribution fee of TL 35 from each candidate qualified to attend the Summit.
Come over. Former YGA Presidents and current YGA Initiative Leaders Asude and Sadık read the comments on "ekşi sözlük” and explain what YGA is about. If you want to learn more, join us in the YGA Summit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNkNNbF6rDY
True, the fractional resource collected from 1,700 participants could have been collected with the sponsorship of one or few companies. However, while YGA is raising funds, our dream is to ensure that thousands and even millions of individuals help to raise the required resource with smaller contributions rather than a few big companies funding the entire amount. Thus, we aim to involve more people in the efforts to create a better Turkey and a better World. Besides, we also dream that YGA would continue its projects independently.
