Culture 4 My Kids, Inc. (C4MK) is a nonprofit organization that works with families, schools, and community centers throughout the state of Virginia to provide a cultural, historical, academic and artistic outlet for youth of all ages. We implement our programs through education and cultural arts to connect with and make a significant impact on the youth.

Servicing approximately 500-1500 youth each year, Culture 4 My Kids, Inc. is dedicated to magnifying the empowering voices of the youth. By understanding their past, our students are able to gain appreciation of their diverse origins. This allows them to build and 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.


The programs that Culture 4 My Kids, Inc. run invest in the child, the community, and the future. C4MK builds long lasting relationships with the young people that we serve. It takes a village to raise a child and we work hard to provide that village setting in which families can connect and support each other. Our commitment to family, tradition, and the village runs 24 hours, 365 days a year.

The work that we do is essential to the cultural development of our youth and our communities. Your contribution will secure that our mission continues and endures.



In the Calabash Village, we explore folktales from all over Africa and beyond. By using storytelling as a method to keep culture alive, we also cover the knowledge of narrative elements, character development, creation of our own stories, and understanding cultural lessons.


Other cultural and educational topics will be examined as we navigate our teachable moments. Additionally, we will explore elements of good character and what is missing when we don’t tell our own stories.



This project was supported, in part, by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, which receives support from the Virginia General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
