Cultural Awareness & Diversity

The Reach One Teach One Inc. Cultural Awareness Program will provide information on preparing students for self-determination as contributing and participating members in a culturally diverse world. This program will educate children to understand and develop a sense of responsibility to their community so that they will understand and appreciate the totality of society.


Positive self-esteem and the valuing of cultural diversity are grounded in historical consciousness that is based on the truth, balance, order, and harmony. They will acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand, respect, and appreciate the historical, cultural differences, and similarities of humankind. Our children will be empowered with the vision, tools, skills, and opportunities to create an environment, which will not marginalize, but instead ensure equity and equality for everyone. The Reach One Teach One Inc. Cultural awareness and Cultural Diversity Program will address the following:


  • African Culture
  • African American Culture
  • Asian Culture
  • European Culture
  • Hispanic Culture
  • Italian Culture
  • Native American Culture
  • Middle Eastern Culture

“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”
