Turkish Cultural Center Vermont is a non-profit organization that aims to respond to social and cultural needs of Turkish Americans and to promote cross-cultural awareness that is based on mutual respect and understanding of the Turkish Culture within Vermont by bringing everyone together in an open dialog. There’s a large community of Turkic Americans living in Vermont. To fulfill its mission, our organization partners with other faith-based, civic and social organizations and organizes/sponsors educational and cultural activities.
