Title: Sosyal Aktiviteler Projesi – Social Activities Project
Summary: The aim of the project is to employ high-school students with activities in drug-free environments. The project is run by Istanbul Police Department with the cooperation of education departments and city municipalities in Istanbul. The project is particularly implemented in high-risk areas and schools where infrastructural capacity is low and risk of substance use is high. Besides its vulnerable residents, Istanbul also attracts many domestic immigrants from Anatolia. This population is mostly located in ghettos or inner parts of the city. Students in these places are not able to engage in youth activities. They spend most of their time at streets and malls without doing anything. As a result, the more time in unsupervised settings, the more risk of substance use. Therefore, the project aims to attract students and employ them with activities (sport, cultural, art, handcraft etc.) in their own social environment. The municipalities provide trainers, equipments, and places for youth. School counsellors motivate students to participate in activities and monitor their enrolment/attendance. Students in programmes are required to participate in activities twice a week. Beside coordination and evaluation tasks, police give seminars about substances and consequences of substance use. It is expected that when students leave the streets and participate in youth activities, they are less likely to use substances. The activities under adult supervision provide them with a drug-free environment and enable them to engage in positive activities in their free time. Trainers do not only entertain them, but also teach them self-discipline and risk of substance use. This natural protection helps students to improve their skills and to adopt conventional lifestyles. The intervention is implemented during educational terms and evaluated with pre- and post-test design surveys. This project is still implemented in three districts of Istanbul. >>
