In today’s world, global citizenship is essential for success and personal growth. Unfortunately, many high school students lack the resources and opportunities to explore the world beyond their immediate communities. That’s why non-profit organizations like I AM C.U.L.T.U..R.E.D. are so important. I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. is dedicated to breaking down the barriers of travel for high school students and empowering them to become the leaders of tomorrow. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the impact I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. has had on the lives of its students and how you can support this incredible organization.

Since its inception, I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. has been providing year-round programs to high school students, offering them a unique and life-changing opportunity to travel to destinations around the world. Through these trips, students are not only exposed to new cultures but also challenged to think critically about their own identities and beliefs. This exposure offers students a true global education and has a positive impact on their academic achievements.

The organization’s founder, Karmia Berry has shared with media outlets the impact that the program has had on the lives of its students. The students’ experiences have given them an edge when applying for internships, colleges and career opportunities. Not only do they feel empowered to explore the world beyond their communities but are truly celebrated for learning about new customs, foods, and ways of life. Check out their appearance on Sway In The Morning earlier this year.

I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D.’s annual fundraising gala is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the organization’s achievements and connect supporters with students and their experiences. This year’s gala was a huge success, with influencers, tastemakers from the travel industry, and members of government present to celebrate change-makers in their respective fields. These annual events are vital in raising funds to support the organization’s programs and continue building its community of advocates. This year’s honorees were Nikki Bethel (The Emma Bowen Foundation), Ariel Corbett (The Dreamville Foundation), Arnie Weissman (Travel Weekly) and Councilwoman Danielle Browne, ESQ.

In its most recent programming year, I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. sent students to Ghana, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Egypt. These destinations proved to be great places to foster deep connections for the students. Students were introduced to local dignitaries, learned about art and history, and even participated in service projects while abroad. All of these experiences contribute to the students’ personal growth as they become more culturally competent and confident.

The real impact of I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. is seen in the transformations of the students who have participated in its program. These young people become confident, knowledgeable, and empathetic global citizens, ready to make their mark on the world. The organization’s efforts to provide equal access to life-changing travel experiences for high school students are critical in creating a new generation of leaders for our society.

If you’re looking for ways to support this incredible organization, consider donating to I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D.. By doing so, you’ll help empower the next generation of global leaders and create a brighter future for all.
