The concept of value can be defined as
relative behavior patterns which are idealized by individuals within the
context of their own philosophies and various factors (religion,
culture, history) in the society. Especially, values have significant
role in shaping societies by providing human rights based environments
and preventing conflicts in daily life. Societies which transfer proper
national and international values to individuals, live in peace. In the
context of social benefit, NGOs also can contribute to value education
process. In general, the concept of civil society is an area between
public and private area or at their intersection created on a voluntary
basis by the citizens who have rights and responsibilities in the fields
other than the family, the state, the market and the politics in order
to solve their problems and protect their rights. This area, which is
pluralistic, autonomous, and participative and includes civil
activities, relations and interests, ensures that their demands are met
by means of various embodiments. Peoples who participate in these
organizations, can contribute to different sections of society. One of
these sections is education. NGOs have also a significant duty to
represent the needs and values of the society within the context of
their basic philosophy. NGOs are based on social values with this
mission and values are transferred or changed through or by NGOs at the
same time. This study is first to examine value education process
through an analysis on the concept of value. Then, the roles and
functions of NGOs will be discussed in the context of national and
international examples in value education.
