Renovation and landscaping of Math Village education center
Sirince, Izmir       12 projects of 2 wks from April to September

Volunteer project: The Math Village in Sirince needs small groups of up to five international volunteers for different daily tasks during the spring and summer. This project will give you a chance to meet a lot of Turkish young people who will be participating in mathematics courses in the center between June 1st and September 15th.

The volunteers' tasks in this project include construction, reconstruction, renovation, landscaping, gardening and classroom cleaning. The volunteers will also work in the kitchen of the non-formal education center and help the staff with preparing and cooking meals, setting up tables and serving food to the students during courses, and washing the dishes.

Math Village was created by a university professor aiming to endear math to young people. The village is already 10 years old. Around 200 math lovers gather in this center during the summer holidays to learn, exercise and study math. International and national math professors are voluntarily sharing their knowledge with the young students.
