The pressure of changes in educational processes and quarantine processes on the global economy remains an obstacle for young people. However, the acceleration of digitalization, which we can define as the best side effect of the quarantine process, creates important opportunities for our youth.

The Design Your Future Program, which was built so that our young people can make use of the opportunities created by accelerated digitalization more easily, aims to increase the employment of our country by combining the skills required for the business world of the future with young people.
