Areas of Volunteering

Candidates can either support our foundation according to their knowledge, skills, experience and expertise or volunteer in following working areas:

Fund Raising: Volunteers can help in building connections with individuals and/or institutions, which are willing to make donations to enhance the resources of the foundation. As a result of those connections, they ensure monetary donations or alike.

Dealing with Donors and Testators: Together with other authorized persons, volunteers arrange periodic visits to donors, who are registered at the head office and the branches of the foundation, in order to provide them moral support and direct their requests to the relevant persons.

Scholar Selections: Volunteers make sure that the selection of scholars are organized by the educational institutions according to the criteria of the foundation and in accordance with the quota assigned by the foundation to each educational institution in Turkey. In cities, where branches exist, volunteers accompany officials from the foundation during the selection process and in other cities they represent the foundation themselves. Additionally, volunteers ensure that announcements are done on time and in a proper format.

Administration: Volunteers support the activities in the head office or branch offices based on their personal and professional skills, i.e. taking orders on the phone for wreath donations, giving operational support for communicational activities, scholar selections and doing follow-ups in the selection process.

Projects and Communication: Volunteers can also support project-based events and organizations which are not part of the existing volunteering areas. For instance, distribution of concert invitations, dinner organizations for donors, booth presentations, arrangement of conferences.

Education: Volunteers who are experts or certified trainers in areas such as personal development or technical education can give educational support in the areas they prefer to students, scholars or employees, who belong to TEV's schools or economic enterprises.
