How you can become a volunteer?

Alongside our professional activities, here at TTM we also host programmes that are run or supported by volunteers. A range of events, training workshops and support activities are offered within the scope of the TTM Volunteer Activities. The volunteer programme aims to enable volunteers to gain experience of working in a rights-based non-governmental organisation, to work in their field of interest/expertise together with people in need of those services, to fight against violence, prejudice and discrimination, and to develop projects in line with TTM’s working principles.

As well as the chance to work as a volunteer, the centre also offers internship opportunities. Candidates who are not afraid of taking responsibility and who are open to collaboration are invited to send a completed volunteer application form. Application results will be decided following a face-to-face interview. Applications are prioritised according to the needs of the centre and the neighbourhood and are assessed on the basis of the applicant’s competences with regard to their proposed activities.


Tarlabaşı Community Center (TTM) conducts educational/psychological/social support activities in the field since year 2006. You can become part of the team and participate in the activities, lead volunteer work in line with your interest and available time.

All work/activity programs planned for a volunteer is unique, tailor made in line with your available time slots and interested areas. Nevertheless, it surely puts a significant amount of responsibility on the volunteer’s shoulders, as it is highly important to keep the planned program intact and in order.
