How Yücel Cultural Foundation Underwent the Pandemic Process?
As Yücel Cultural Foundation we adapted telecommuting, beginning from 16 March 2020.
Starting from April 2020; we organized online sessions with different topics from yoga to informatics, from volunteering to effects of pandemic on human psychology, from European Solidarity Corps to sign language, with connoisseurs in their fields.
Besides, we constituted our English Speaking Club, starting from June 2020, for youngsters to practice English, communicate in a foreign language and stay on hold
