The First Chance Program, which supports young people who are just starting professional careers, prepares them for the future and gives them confidence, meeting a very important social need in this age of change. At Akfen, we see every project that fosters social responsibility awareness as an opportunity to contribute to social wealth and touch people’s lives. All young people that participate in the program create value for themselves, their environment and our country. Our approach, which we see as a priority and define as “Preparing young people for life by providing them with life skills to make a difference in the community and the world, and ensuring they contribute positively to communities,” forms the basis of our support for the program. The First Chance Program participants are talent with potential, more experience than their peers, higher awareness, and a stronger stance in work life and are ahead of the curve.
