  • WHO WE ARE? Active Youth Association (AYA) is a local NGO which focused youth activities. AYA has already built by youngsters and trainers with the topic of youth activities at 2001. Individual development of the youngsters, active participation to the local government mechanisms and outdoor activities were the first activities of AYA. International activities were started on 2004 and still continue. Legal status of this informal youth group was realized on 2008 as an NGO. Today, events and activities are realizing with the experience about youth from 9 years before and have a strong effect to local area. AYA is focusing on participation of the youngsters to political and social management process; international cooperation and program development especially on Europe level; individual development of youngsters about culture – art and sport and active youth participation with our members which numbers are up than 90 and matures which numbers are up than 20. We have already realized activities about; Communication, disadvantaged people, nature and environment, sport and outdoor activities, scouting, human rights, handcrafts and EU topics. About these topics we realized around 20 European Commission Youth Program projects (youth exchanges, trainings, seminars, etc.), around 15 international youth camps and hundreds campaigns, meetings, forums and activities. About Çanakkale; The province of Canakkale lies in the northwest of Turkey on both sides of the Dardanelles (the ancient Hellespont), a strait which connects the Sea of Marmara to the Aegean Sea. Its shores touch both Europe and Asia. Canakkale is the name of both the city and the province which includes the legendary citadel of Troy (Troia), the ruins of Assos where the famous Temple of Athena was built, and the battlefields of Gallipoli. Archaeologists say there are up to 200 ancient sites in this region, many still unexcavated, so it is possible you may be wandering among ruins thousands of years old without even knowing it! There are also many Ottoman structures still standing; castles, bridges, mosques, mansions and Turkish baths. In the villages and towns, centuries-old crafts, cooking and styles of dress can still be seen. Although you will occasionally feel as if you have stepped back in history, Canakkale has firmly embraced the first century of the new millennium when it comes to the essentials of living and you will have no difficulty finding an internet cafe, fax facilities, cornflakes, cash points and the rest. According to the statistics, half of all families in the city of Canakkale own a car, about half use a mobile phone and there is one of the lowest crime rates in Turkey. Those of you who are enraptured by history will find plenty to slake your thirst in the area. There are also lots of uncrowned corners where you can paddle along the shore, stretch out on the sand, scuba dive or just park yourself in the shade, sip something exotic and gaze out at the sea hoping for a glimpse of some playful dolphins. In the Gulf of Edremit, the air is claimed to have one of the highest concentrations of oxygen in the world. Around the province there are thermal spas in small towns where a variety of ailments are treated. Geologists may have a field day studying these and other mineral springs where both hot and cold water gush from the ground. Bears are very rare nowadays, but small game and wild boars are plentiful in the countryside. Here, the rich variety of insect life, plants, mosses and lichens would keep a botanist busy for a life time. When night falls, most of the socializing takes place on or near the seafront, where there are cafes, bars, tea gardens and discos to suit everyone's taste. In short, the city and province of Canakkale present a spectrum of pleasures, beliefs, larger-than-life characters, customs and undiscovered history awaiting exploration by the inquisitive mind or advent.
