Kids and Cultures sets new direction
Timm and Kristina Wenger have announced two significant changes to the organization they founded eight years ago. Kids and Cultures began in 2003 as a non-profit educational organization to introduce children to world cultures. The board voted in February 2011 to authorize the conversion of the organization to a for-profit corporation which will be run by the Wengers.
In addition to the structural change, the Wengers are also rolling out a new plan to involve more partners, including international presenters and presentation facilitators, in their programs. They are developing a network of storytellers, musicians, and other performers who will be available for schools and other groups. "Since the beginning, we have desired for Kids and Cultures to grow beyond what our family can do," says Timm. "These two changes will bring the flexibility and connections for the programs to expand." Meet our presenters.
The Wengers thank the board members and volunteers who have served throughout the years to enable Kids and Cultures to introduce children to world cultures.
