ABOUT US

A unique educational program that bridges the gap between students’ diverse backgrounds, teaching lessons of acceptance and respect.

about1a

Connecting Cultures Mobile Museum (CCMM) is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization working to foster cultural awareness, understanding, and acceptance in LA youth. CCMM brings a unique cross-cultural museum experience directly into schools, focusing primarily on middle school-age students at Title 1-funded, low income schools.
However, we understand that students, whether from affluent or disadvantaged backgrounds, often have limited contact with cultures outside their own communities. This is why, since 1995, CCMM has been offering unique educational resources and programs to schools regardless of location or student population. CCMM reaches between 16,000 and 20,000 students each year!

CCMM helps bridge the gap between students’ diverse backgrounds, teaching lessons of acceptance and respect.

CCMM has three main objectives:

  • to increase understanding and respect for cultural diversity
  • to develop students’ cultural competence
  • to support and enhance classroom learning

[The students] see things that are important and meaningful to them and that makes them eager to learn.
