BECOME A VOLUNTEER

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 application form to iletisim@tarlabasi.org. 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. Before making an application, please read the TTM Working Principles and Volunteer Responsibilities.

VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

TTM is also a place for individuals to realize and develop themselves, participating actively in civil society

Volunteer works do not consist of supporting the service Center provides. It is highly valuable and important for us to see volunteers’ involvement in decision making process, taking responsibility in internal matters, making suggestions for improvements, lead advocacy works. You can also organize & execute educational, cultural and art seminars, conferences, film shows, exhibitions, festivals, meetings, workshops etc with support from TTM on content and planning issues. You can also participate in trainings & events we regularly organize for volunteers and enhance both your experience and your awareness on working at a civil society organization as well as subjects like human rights advocacy, communal justice, gender mainstreaming, equality, discrimination, migration.
