At Culture4MyKids, Inc. our mission is to empower young people with the ability to take control of their education and their future. Our organization works with families, schools and community centers all over the city of Richmond. We implement programs that use cultural arts to connect with and make a significant impact on the youth. Servicing approximately 500-1,000 youth each year, C4MK is able to give an empowering voice to urban youth. By understanding the past, our students are able to gain appreciation of their diverse origins which allows them to build/re-build a positive self-image and create a more solid future. We pride ourselves in building life long relationships with the families that we serve.
C4MK works with community centers, schools, churches and governmental agencies. Most of the programs are designed for and enjoyed by all ages and populations. Over the past few years, Culture4MyKids, Inc. has networked with: Trinity Family Life Center, Camp Diva, Girls Can, North Side YMCA, First Baptist of Centralia, C.I.S. Thompson, Robinson Theater, Red Cross, Powhatan Community Center, Henderson Middle School, MLK Boys and Girls Club, Higher Achievement, Richmond Youth Peace Project and several others. We will continue to work with any organization in any location that is looking to make a difference in a child's life.

Taaluma Youth Performance curriculum encompasses all of the Culture4MyKids programming into one year-long, intensive and loving series of experiences. The central mission for this program is to expose youth to their natural talents and abilities by offering developmental instruction in areas of dance, instrumentation and responsibility development. The main goals are: to allow the students to develop an appreciation for culture by exposing them to travel, to help them gain an understanding about their connection to African heritage by increasing their knowledge of African history and to use community partnerships to expose the students to their natural skill sets.
We would like to have regular scheduled annual activities and programs for our children. We would like to have our first group of children move into their leadership roles and we would like to have the children well versed in various cultural celebrations.
Long term, we would like to double our participation numbers. We would like to have our students traveling to at least five different cities each year sharing their knowledge and eventually take their first trip out of the country. We would also like to have trained and employed at least 20 interns and see all of our current teens graduate.

One of our greatest financial challenges has been the establishing of strong financial record keeping and policies. Our finance manager is a professional who has worked in accounting and the financial industry for the last 20 years. We are reviewing and detailing our financial policies and record keeping standards. We have accomplished so much this year. We look forward to having everything finalized by the end of the next fiscal closing.
