The project was carried out in partnership with the Community Volunteers Foundation, the Friends of Yedikule Animal Shelter Society, and the Clean Sea TURMEPA Association. The project offers young people the opportunity to choose and shape the social responsibility initiatives they participate in, based on their interests, as well as to be introduced to civil society organizations operating in different areas and to learn more about these civil society organizations.
Through Akbank’s partnership with civil society organizations, young university student volunteers clean shores, paint schools, help stray animals and organize activities for children in care. Every year over thirty social responsibility projects are implemented in Istanbul as well as in 25 other cities. The young volunteers then let off steam after all their hard work at the Akbank Jazz Festival’s most in-demand concert. The concert is also attended by representatives from Turkey’s top civil society organizations and Akbank volunteers.
Now a tradition, the “Good State of the City” project continues this year to work with young volunteers.
