Who we are

Mission Statement

Making Connections Inc. (aka Making Cultural Connections) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cultural education organization founded in 2001. Our mission is to increase cultural awareness, understanding, and valuing of the rich Hispanic/Latino cultural diversity coming from European, Indigenous, and African cultures. We provide cultural activities, workshops, and training to school children, parents, youth, and other community organization groups. We build partnerships to embrace the Latino cultural heritage, to increase self-esteem and cultural pride, and to promote education and youth leadership. We work with other cultural groups to share our common cultural bonds.

Goals and Objectives – Our Purpose

We support parental involvement in schools, teach parents the importance of valuing
and embracing their cultural heritage, and connect our families with community
resources. We accomplish these goals through working with parents, schools,
businesses, and community organizations. Together we motivate students to stay in
school, they achieve high academic success, and families connect with their cultural
heritage; instilling cultural pride and building a strong future.
