YADA contributes to the field of civil society by implementing research projects, doing monitoring and evaluation studies for various NGOs. Carrying out projects in cooperation with international, national and local NGOs and sharing its own experiences with various NGOs to improve their implementations are the goals. YADA organizes workshops, designs projects and implements these projects each year with the intention of increasing the capacity of the NGOs. To respond to the new and different social and environmental needs of NGOs, YADA organizes workshops and monitoring–evaluation activities. Contributing to the capacity of the youth and the local NGOs within the scope of “Life Plus” Youth Program is another goal of YADA. Up to date YADA played a leading role in establishing 8 NGOs.
