Culture For One is grateful to all who share our mission to transform the lives of New York City children in foster care through the power of the arts. 


OUR Cultural  Partners





Culture For One volunteers play an essential role in the success of our programs. They provide our children encouragement, caring companionship and inspirartion during cultural and career excursions, arts workshops and individual instruction. Our young people get to know adults of diverse ages,  backgrounds and interests -- and these consistent interactions demonstrate to our children that they have a valuable role to play in the culture of our city. 

Many of our youth in care struggle with hope for their future. It was gratifying to hear the panelists discuss the paths they travelled to get to their current place in life. The Culture For One Career Panel demonstrated to the youth that with perseverance and hard work they can accomplish their dreams. Many thanks to the panelists for their willingness to share.

Cultural excursions hosted by Culture for One are rare and valuable opportunities for youth in residence to visit New York City and partake of inspiring art offerings while widening their view of the world.
