We try to develop and improve our education and social activity opportunities provided to students and young people by following all new technologies and best pedagogical, cultural and social methods in order to present the most desired and beneficial education for our society. We would like to prepare our children and young people for life mentally, psychologically and physically. Furthermore, we are trying to provide an accessible and acceptable standard of sport facilities to all our target groups and develop a good understanding of the context of sport and recreation facilities. In this field we are closely collaborating with Çatalca Directorate of Sports & Youth Services.
Our organization further aims at providing different education opportunities especially to the disadvantaged group of people in our region since we have a multicultural area that is home to immigrants from different regions of Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria. Due to being established in an intensive internal immigrant populated area, it's inevitable for us to plan different school activities for their integration in this new settlement. The Directorate also organizes different leisure time activities, counselling children and youngsters in the case of behavioural and communication problems, interpersonal conflicts, aggression, etc.
