CEMA Foundation is a Community Organization

We serve the multi-cultural community throughout the world. Our name defines who WE are and what we specialize in... Cultural Enrichment, Music, and Arts...CEMA. Our EDUCATIONAL program offers a number of virtual after school and tutorial classes for both children and adults. We believe that music is the best form of communication in the world, and our MUSIC programs provide musical training to all ages on every level. Our ART programs teach men, women, young adults and children how to embrace their own beauty and nourish their love for art. We offer ALL of these services to everyone.

The CEMA staff and volunteers work many hours planning music and arts programs, developing social services resources, developing special community fundraising events, holding workshops and training classes, and general operations. ​​Collaboration and partnerships are the foundation of our projects. Without the knowledge, resources, capabilities, and manpower that partnerships can bring, we would be unable to accomplish the depth and number of programs we have developed. Likewise, without our excellence in planning and management skills, our ability to build and nurture community partnerships would not be a reality. ​

We are focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place through cultural enrichment, entertainment, music and the arts. With the help of our tireless staff, we organize fundraisers, community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for the under served communities, families, CEMA interns and volunteers.

 

Our program is a tremendous asset to any community. We provide services to people in need, no matter race, gender, religion or income status our doors are open to any and everyone. A lot of our community events are FREE and open to the general public. We have activities for everyone! Men, women, Seniors, children and good ole fashioned family fun! At our festivals, we want everyone in the community to experience the pulchritude of music and the art first hand while raising awareness about CEMA and signing up new participants.

All CEMA programming supports the institutional mission: the annual conference “CEMAFEST”, The PED Program, “It’s Never Too Late” Senior Program, CEMA Radio and TV, as well as a vibrant Internship program. CEMA also offers special programming and events with community partners throughout the year.
