A Letter from our Founder & President
“Creative Connections’ global commitment to foster cultural understanding and appreciation within the hearts and minds of young people is as strong as ever.
Through the course of our exchanges, students experience the rich cultural diversity of the world they live in through the eyes of their overseas partners, while discovering the common values that bind them.
We are all about breaking down the walls of stereotypical thinking and ignorance.
We are, and will always be, bridge builders.”
– An excerpt from a letter sent to our international partners
just days after the US Presidential election
Creative Connections may be a small organization but we are certainly mighty!
As we prepare to turn the page on 2016, I would like to thank each and every one of you.
Because of your support over the past 24 years:
– We are challenged to innovate in order to meet a growing need – to date we have connected more than 100,000 students living in 62 countries through the universal language of the arts
– We continue to develop innovative, technology-driven ways of connecting to all corners of our globe, from Japan to Jordan
– We are driven to think big, to transform our proven classroom based programming into a live, student-to-student travel exchange in the Brazilian Amazon
Thank you for being a part of our global community!
With every best wish for a wonderful New Year –
Alan Steckler, Founder & President
