Description de la mission :

Akdeniz Üçüncü Göz Eğitim ve Gençlik Derneği (Third Eye Education and Youth Association of Mediterranean-TEAM) is situated in Kazanlı - Mersin – Turkey.

T.E.A.M. was founded in 2009 in order to protect the wild and natural life with the local community and youth in and around Mersin. We especially care alot with the Sea-Turtles (Caretta-Caretta and CheloniaMydas), which leave their eggs on the coast of Kazanlı-Mersin and are under the risk of extinction. We act as an EVS coordinating organisation in Mersin (sending and hosting volunteers), give training course to youths, build up awareness and European citizenship by volunteering.

Our organization is promoting international and intercultural values, also youth initiatives and projects in the local community.
