Cultural Connect Program
The Caribbean American Cultural Arts Foundation Cultural Connect Program offers multicultural students the opportunity to learn about the global community. The objective of the program is to educate students about their diverse communities, people, and cultures. We have partnered with Parent Avengers, a parent advocacy group located in historic Vine City, Atlanta, GA.
Program Mission: To bridge a gap in cultural understanding, and build an efficient diverse community of inclusion. This unique arts program involves national and international inclusion that also has a social-economical component that impacts generations to come. The program's goal is to close the gap of cultural understanding and build a future diverse community of inclusion. We can ensure better community leaders, who will embrace emotional intelligence because they experienced knowledge from an artistic lens. The Cultural Connect Program celebrates the POWER OF ART to IMPACT CHANGE!
