GSM – Youth Services Centre has been established for the aim of contributing for personal, social and cultural development of youth and supporting them being active citizens on 1985 in Ankara.
We as GSM see youth as the source of the society as well as the most dynamic part of it. We believe that active participation of youth into communal living contributes sustainability and development of a democratic society. We strive for youth to become individuals who see the present and the future with hope.
