VEN*C Cultural Soul Academy, Inc.
Keep Culture and Community United While Embracing Individual Talents

What we do...

VEN*C Cultural Soul Academy, Inc. is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Massachusetts. Our mission is to keep culture and community united while embracing individual talents.

 We’ve begun to fulfill this mission by creating enrichment programs and hosting friendly themed bashes, whose primary focus is on the youth in our community.  Our first initiative via the Cultural Soul Academy is a 16 week self-esteem program for young girls 8-12 years old.  The program teaches the girls different aspects of maintaining healthy self-esteem throughout their lives.  We discuss topics such as setting goals, letting off steam in a positive way, embracing your uniqueness and appreciating other cultures.  We also have a focus on service by having the girls participate in two volunteer events within the community during the 16 weeks.  We connect with the community by inviting positive role models from the area to join a few of our sessions to share their stories and talents with the girls. Since then we have created other enrichment programs for all children, boys and girls, ages 8-12 years old.
We have been fortunate to receive support from various individuals and organizations including the United Way of Greater New Bedford's Community Building Mini-Grants Program, Dennison Memorial Community Center, the Cape Verdean Association in New Bedford, Inc., and many others.

We believe a healthy child is one who is happy with the inside and out, and that is why self-esteem is so important in children.  It helps them grow to be confident, independent, loving, productive and happy adults.  We hope to continue to expand the Cultural Soul Academy to include a permanent location as well as other programs that can continue to impact the lives of children all around the world.
