Educational Exchange Programs

The ATFC aims to support local universities and companies to help them meet their international student, student internship, and faculty exchange objectives. The ATC also would help them to increase cultural awareness of Turkey and to support students and faculty members with the skills necessary to work in a global environment. There are many wonderful opportunities to not only help Turkish students and faculty to visit the U.S., but also for American students and faculty to participate in the Turkish university system.

School Outreach Project to promote Turkey to American Students

With the idea of immersing young children to multicultural environments at an early age, the American Turkish Friendship Council established a new educational and cultural initiative.
