Who We Are
A Distinct Identity
NC Ark is organized for the educational, charitable, social and cultural organization founded by Turkish-Americans in Charlotte.
The NC Ark aims to cultivate friendship and promote understanding of diverse cultures through its unique services to the community. We strive to establish bridges between the Turkish and American cultures and communities by providing easily accessible educational, social, and cultural services.
At NC Ark family workshops we include a variety of activities for different interests so that children, teenagers, and adults can come together and enjoy sports, reading, delicious meals, picnics and more.
The Cultural Activities take place to bring attention to the historical milestones, customs, traditions of Turkish culture. NC Ark staff and volunteers are able to express their unique culture through Turkish cousin, Turkish Coffee, Turkish baklava, Art show. Some of the cultural nights are as follows: Turkish Coffee Nights, Henna Nights, Cooking Class, etc...
Friendship Gatherings aim to break down the barriers between our communities by visiting local churches, synagogues, and community centers. With the support of families of NC Ark serves homemade international food at these events to create an informal and friendly atmosphere for open minded, candid discussions.
