The Turkish Coalition of America (TCA) is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications from promising young Turkish Americans to attend the Council of Turkish Canadians (CTC) 9th Annual Turkish-Canadian Youth Congress, held February 10-12, 2017 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
This marks the first time Turkish American youth will attend the Turkish Canadian Youth Congress. During the conference, Canadian and American youth will have the opportunity to learn about the Turkish communities in both countries and work together to develop international networks with their peers in Canada. Participants will learn about the Canadian political system, meet leaders in the Turkish Canadian community, share their own experiences as members of the Turkish American community, and develop leadership skills.
Undergraduate/graduate students and recent graduates of Turkish American heritage are invited to apply for this exclusive forum. TCA will provide assistance for the travel of up to two qualified applicants, and CTC will sponsor their accommodation and conference participation. Applicants should also be prepared to present about their experiences as a Turkish American on a panel during the conference.
