Yusra Center

Yusra Center is a community space in Balat that offers young children from Syria a safe space to express themselves through art and language learning.

What We Do

Over the last year, we organized projects related to digital literacy and environmental science for roughly 20-30 children ages 3-10.

Many families are afraid to send their children to Turkish school because of the fear that they will lose their Arabic language skills. Currently, our volunteers have launched an Arabic course, so that they do not forget their mother language as they grow up in Turkey.

We We Need

Volunteers who would like to work with children and have intermediate Arabic skills.


We send volunteers for the Arabic program on Fridays at 2 PM.
