We initially launched the concept in 2015 as a series of workshops in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, DC, and Global Education teachers in DCPS. We are proud to expand this concept and curriculum to a full, standalone program in Spring 2016.
Culturfied Kids encourages children to discover the wonder of world culture, through educational programs with the following objectives:
• To develop and distribute stimulating educational materials that will enhance cross-cultural understanding and promote appreciation for unique people and places around the world, and particularly cultural exchanges related to the arts, culture, music, and cuisine.
• To recruit and train local facilitators, including in partnership with Teach for America.
• To increase young people’s knowledge and understanding of different peoples, languages, cultures, histories, and religions, and to foster and increase friendship and communication between children from different ethnic backgrounds.
