The project ”Youth and Powerful 2” takes place in Rzeszów, Poland. The volunteers from Turkey is going to be a part of the project for two months. The goal of the project is to develop interpersonal and intercultural connection among young people as well as among organizers of activities – volunteers themselves. From now on, every two months INPRO is going to host two volunteers from Turkey.

The volunteers are currently responsible for the Facebook pages about the voluntary projects in Europe and they share the valid ones to inform the interested people. They also help people from Rzeszów to be aware of the cultural agenda of the city and they share the details of ongoing events. Moreover, one of their main goal is to produce video contents to make an interaction between Turkish and Polish people such as presenting the cuisine, correcting the wrong informations by using a humorous and entertaining style in their videos. They aim to be both entertaining and enlightening. They also write blog articles about the benefits of voluntary service, their experience abroad and comparisons between their country and the hosting country. Moreover, one of their duties is to organize school trips, aiming to build a bridge between the nations at a young age. Lastly, they will inform people who don’t have a Facebook account about what is going on in INPRO and which ongoing and future events they can attend.
