Kindness Rock Garden



We invite you and your family to join us and help to create our Kindness Rock Garden at 909 Shull Street, West Columbia, SC 29169 (parking lot off 9th Street) on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 6:30 pm.



The Greenville office enjoyed taking part in creating a Kindness Rock Garden as seen here:
Families came to our office together and painted rocks and shared in words or phrases that are upbuilding to one another. It was great to sit together and come up with words and designs that might appeal to others. We encourage you to come and pick up a rock and leave a rock whenever you stop at the office.

Feeding The Brain with Books


The Atlantic Institute hosted a free book giveaway for children of all ages. This event was to help promote reading throughout the community for children.We had a few families and children come to the event. They were able to pick out several books, color a bookmark and listen to stories being read. Fun was had by all.

Turkish Classes

 Turkish Classes

It's that time of year again! The Istanbul Cultural Center is gearing up for it's next season of Turkish Language Classes for Winter 2017!

classTurkish is one of the most-spoken languages of the world that up until recently held a low profile until Turkey's development as one of the top international players in the world. These classes help beginners, as well as more advanced students; learn Turkish at their own pace. Students take these classes for many different reasons, such as for career purposes, an approaching trip to Turkey or just for the love of learning.

You learn from experienced teachers.

You learn not only Turkish grammar, but you also put what you learn into practice in various ways: playing games; learning songs; receiving visits from native speakers of Turkish; and watching TV commercials, soap operas, and cartoons.


Class #1 Starting Feb 8th, Wednesday from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Class #2 Starting Feb 21st, Tuesdays from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
