TÜRGEV was founded under the leadership of His Excellency Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the president of Turkish Republic in 1996 when he was serving as the mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. Offering its services only in Istanbul as Istanbul Youth and Education Service Foundation (İSEGEV) back then, TÜRGEV aimed at propagating its services across Turkey in August 2012 and changed its name to Turkey Youth and Education Service Foundation (TÜRGEV).
TÜRGEV started to offer its services with one dormitory in Istanbul in 1996 and took it as a goal to train young entrepreneur people who know their history, themselves and their targets, who inquire, learn, produce.
TÜRGEV keeps maintaining its existence across Turkey with more than its 10 thousand students and its 2688 graduates in 22 years.
Embarking on its journey by opening higher education dormitories, TÜRGEV expanded its field of service with Palet Schools in 2011. Palet Schools operate in Başakşehir and Ümraniye, İstanbul at primary school and kindergarten levels.
