The week I spent at the YouthIstanbul Project was one of the best weeks of my life! The lectures were interesting and useful, but the best part of the experience was definitely meeting open-minded people from all over the world and making friends for life. Staying at your host’s home gives you a great insight into the culture and life of the locals, who are definitely some of the warmest and most hospitable people I’ve ever met. It is truly an opportunity you don’t want to miss!

“YIP is as sweet as Baklava and as amazing as Kebab”

A week with YIP was incredible. I had an unforgettable experience, filled with intent learning about Cryptocurrency and law, Turkish culture, Istanbul sightseeing and friends. Since my first day, I received a warm welcome from my hosts, Kardelen and Begum, and the YIP team. I as well met the most amazing people who come from different countries, Hongkong, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Austria, etc., and I love them all. Also, not only we need to work hard for the projects and presentation, but also play hard on the fieldtrips and cultural practice that the YIP team gave to us. And, I think, for the university student, YIP is the most fantastic experience that all must try. Ultimately, I truly appreciate the YIP team for giving a lot of thing to make my visit to Istanbul the best.
