CultureConnect was created in 1994 as Rhinebeck Connections and later became Young Rhinebeck. While the name of our organization has changed a few times, our focus on young people in our community has been our cornerstone.
Our largest program, LLL, began in 2005 and has helped hundreds of elementary school students improve skills, build academic and social confidence and connect families with support. LLL has expanded and is now available both in the Rhinebeck and Red Hook school districts.
Our newest program, MadagascarConnect, prepares high school students for an immersive education and awareness of the island country of Madagascar, culminating their experience in a three week visit to the country.
CultureConnect is proud to offer programs in our community that provide opportunities for our local youth to interact with local and global communities with intelligence, compassion, and cultural competence.
