Cool Culture brings together community members to help parents to instill a love of learning in their children that will last a lifetime while supporting their children's educational development, essential in addressing the achievement gap.
NYC's museums, botanical gardens, wildlife, and performing arts centers provide exceptional opportunities for families to engage in just the types of activities that contribute to young children's cognitive and language development while cultivating new audiences for the arts.
Our goal is to facilitate literacy and learning through cultural visits and to foster a new population of informed, cultural connoisseurs who will remain engaged long after they have graduated from Cool Culture.
