Who we are

Mission Statement

Making-Connections, Inc. (aka Making Cultural Connections) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art/cultural education organization. Our mission is to provide cultural education programs in the community to increase understanding about our rich and diverse heritages coming from European, Indigenous, and African cultures. We focus on highlighting the multicutural backgrounds of Latin America, the Caribbean Islands, and their cultural heritage connections with Africa. We provide art/cultural activities, presentations, workshops, and training to schools, families, youth, and other community organizations.

Goals and Objectives – Our Purpose

Our goals are to connect youth with leadership skills, increase self-esteem, promote education and cultural pride to discourage high risk behaviors. We build partnerships in the community schools, Art centers, churches, and recreation centers to share, educate, and celebrate our cultural heritage and the common bonds that connect us. Together we motivate students to stay in school, achieve high academic success, and connect with their cultural heritage which instills cultural pride and builds a strong future.
