Youth Field Research aims to map the actors of the youth field in Turkey both quality and quantity-wise, have them recognized, define their needs and empower the interaction among these actors. The main actors in the youth field are youth organisations. With this research, youth organisations will be examined and classified in a number of titles (legal status, organisational capacity, geographical distribution, theme, target group, budget etc.). Besides the youth organisations, other people and organisations producing service, information and policy in the field of youth as well as various info and funding resources will also be examined.
During the research, which will last 10 months, data will be gathered from all over Turkey, especially from provinces where Local Contact Points are present. Surveys, in depth interviews and data scraping will be the 3 stages of the research and at the end of these procedures, the data will be digitalised on an on-line platform, which will be open to the access of the target group. The digital platform will be designed in a user-friendly way to meet the needs of the target group.
