There Are Many Ways to Get Involved

Home > Get Involved

Time to get Culturfied! We’re looking for individuals, businesses and organizations which are passionate about multicultural education. Join us on our mission! There are a number of ways to get involved.


We’re always in need of dedicated volunteers to help us execute events, programs and operational support.  We welcome general event and office assistant volunteers, but are also always in need of global teachers, marketing experts, PR professionals, grant writers, bloggers, and most importantly fundraisers.
Volunteer once, occasionally or often—whatever works best for your schedule. This is an easy way to get involved and support Culturfied Foundation. Though we cannot pay our volunteers, we do occasionally reward our most dedicated volunteers with fun perks and surprises to show our thanks! For upcoming volunteer opportunities, visit our blog.

Does your business or organization support nonprofits or sponsor events? Consider becoming a Culturfied Foundation sponsor. Our registered 501(c)3 organization brings important multicultural education programs to D.C. area middle schools. We also provide exposure to world cultures and cultural exchange and understanding through community events, an online community and more. In our often divided world that often fears the unknown, Culturfied builds bridges to rich multicultural connection and community.
We would love to meet with your development, marketing or Corporate Social Responsibility staff to share more about our program and discuss sponsorship tiers and benefits.
To start a conversation about sponsorship, email

•    Our flagship program Culturfied Kids was launched as a series of workshops in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, DC, and Global Education teachers in DCPS and will expand to a more robust standalone program (based on the same concept and curriculum) in Spring 2016.
•    We partnered with the Embassy of Indonesia and Nepal Embassy for one of our events. We are actively seeking partnerships with more embassies, to enrich our flagship global education program. We are also seeking an embassy or cultural center willing to lend use of their space to host our upcoming Culturfied Kids Saturday program.
•    Teach For America – D.C. Region invited our founder Mele Melton to be a keynote speaker and host a booth at their 2015 regional opportunity fair, where she presented the benefits of being a Culturfied facilitator, adopting Culturfied Kids program in their classrooms and recommending top students to become part of Culturfied Kids program. 
•    We have partnered with TOMODACHI program. Japanese and Washington DC high school students from their program ran an educational session and lesson for Culturfied Kids. The students discussed how to use chopsticks, make origami and write in Japanese. They also learned about relief efforts being conducted for areas ravished by the earthquake and tsunami that impacted Japan. We are grateful to The DC Center for Global Education and Leadership program that made TOMODACHI Program possible.
