Our Mission

ETAC-USA aims to empower and to enrich the lives of the Turkish-American Community and the Community at large.

ETAC-USA is founded to empower and to enrich the lives of the Turkish-American Community and the Community at large. This will be realized by: Collaborating with public and private partners, Engaging in innovative solutions to issues, Sharing educational, recreational, cultural, occupational & social experiences, Creating opportunities for Turkish-Americans to reach their fullest potential in a sustainable, nurturing, healthy & safe environment, Establishing in the Bay Area, a Community Center for Turkish-Americans and the general public alike that they can call home –TURK EVI.
ETAC-USA desires to empower and develop the Turkish-American Community so that its members are more independent, more participatory more engaged and integrated into their local communities.
We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board. We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability. We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.

Where Donation Goes

Our Services

ETAC Children's Club

This program consisted of a children's program at the Turkish American Community Centers, but during the pandemic this has become a virtual story telling hour every Saturday at 11am(PST) via Zoom.

ETAC Library for All Ages

The program with the use of a professional library software, offers a considerable number of books in Turkish for children and adults at its two community centers. ETAC Library operates just like public libraries.

Resource and Referral Hotline

Providing Turkish American Community information on resources available to them in their communities in the fields of education, immigration, health, housing and finance. Lending a helping hand with a variety of resources to those in need.

Turkish-American Community Centers

Physical locations as Turkish American Community Centers for the community: 1) to educate the Turkish American Community on being a more involved and participatory citizens, 2) to hold celebrations on special occasions, 3) to organize events for all ages.

Turkish-American Professionals Directory

This directory encompasses professionals and businesses all across The US.

ETAC Pioneers Club and Pioneers Stories

The program records and stores stories of Pioneer Turkish Americans who have come to the Bay Area between 1950-1980 and are still living in the Greater Bay Area in Northern California. The intention of the program is to open it up to ALL Americans in the US with Turkish decent in its second phase. This way it will contribute to the cultural ethnicity of the USA just like Italians and the Irish. The Pioneers Club also intends to hold events for its members once the pandemic is over and safe for that age group to get together.

Songs for the Future

By means of this program, ETAC collaborates with other local and international non-profits and holds an annual gala to raise funds for the education of young girls in Turkey. All the non profits in the US and in Turkey are vetted to make sure the funds go to the right people - girls under 18 years of age so they get an opportunity to be educated.

Take A Seat

Providing an opportunity for the Turkish American Community to memorialize/recognize their loved ones and their businesses to be visible. The donations will be used to offer services to the Turkish American Community members in need and at large.
