Education and Socialization Working Group

As the ETAC Education Working Group, we organize educational, social and cultural programs, as well as fun activities for different age groups (children, youth, adult).

Our goal is to address the needs and interests of the Turkish American community through various programs such as Book Clubs, Children’s Clubs, Turkish & English Book Checkout Programs (Children, Youth and Adults) at our Community Centers (Turk Evleri). 

-CHILDREN’s CLUB is for 3-6 year old kids. We create a developmentally appropriate program based on the children’s interests and provide a safe environment of growth and learning with fun activities. Through these programs, the children are building friendships, having interactive play time through games and storytelling, as well as sharing their interest in science, music, dance, art and crafts. They also expand their Turkish language and Turkish Culture. 

We help the children express themselves in different ways to enhance their creative social, cognitive and language development while having fun. 

-We support lessons and adult English and Turkish languages. 

-We also have other projects in the works, such as: Teen Time, Poem Club, Featured Speakers for educational programs and special days (authors, scientists, artists, photographers, mortgage – real estate experts, immigration lawyers … or College Research Adviser for the youth)

-Organize Art Competitions for children and youth. 

-Group tournaments, such as Chess, Bridge, Tavla, Board Games for adults.

-Hiking activities and field trips (e.g. picking fruits with kids),
