CSEBRI – Pioneer in Creativity and Exchange (Cultural Society) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of those in our community. We envision a learning environment without boundaries.

Our mission is to inspire curiosity for learning and to nurture the next generation of world citizens embracing diversity with health-conscious lifestyles.

Founded in 2011, we began with our Mandarin Chinese language program. We work closely with parents, stakeholders, and team members to foster a love of language and culture in each student. Our teaching skillfully weaves theory and the practical into language lessons. Students learn to connect the culture with the language and put it in practical communication use. Students are encouraged to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.

At Cultural Society, we celebrate diversity and strive to instill integrity, compassion, and confidence in each child and young professional. Our Culture & Heritage programs give each learner support and encouragement to become his or her own unique self.

As of the new school year of 2019-2020, we added a Health & Wellness Program as part of our mission. We hope to continue

1) To raise the awareness of our community about health.  Our approach to improve health is to balance exercise and nutrition. 

2) To provide classes to teach about exercise and nutrition. Our primary vehicle for this exercise program is yoga.  We will provide one-on-one and small group coaching for people to apply our methodology in their lives.

Our First Ten Year

In the spring of 2020, the World was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. When a crisis hits, that’s the moment that draws out the most from Cultural Society. We put our creativity to work and moved all of our classes online via the Zoom platform. We made the transition to online delivery while serving our existing clients and adhering to the new protocols imposed by the state’s enforced CDC guidelines. Cultural Society remains steadfast in serving our existing clients while going through a steep learning curve in the digital transformation process, and will always value safety first. Thus, we have begun to establish a community of learners without borders. We will continue to create and develop a lasting virtual community of learners everywhere.

Asian American Connection Initiative – Our New Initiative

As the pandemic wore on and unemployment continued to rise, we saw a dire need for helping people get back to work. Cultural Society again rose to the occasion and added a new initiative called Asian American Connection.   Although we’re focusing on Asian-Americans for the mentorship program, our goal is all-encompassing and we aim to include all Americans who lost their jobs due to the pandemic or have been “stuck” in low-skill jobs for a long time.  We’re focusing on Asian-Americans first because that’s where our expertise lies. Through the mentorship program with Asian-Americans and general Americans, we can bring out the best from both sides.   Furthermore, we are planning to establish a job-skill training center that will help people brush up on their skills in order to adapt to our changing economy.   

Thus, the Asian American Connection is another new initiative we added in 2020.  Please read more about this initiative as we expand it and call on more volunteers to get involved with our organization.  Consider volunteering with us.  

We are also looking into organizational grants to support our efforts to establish this job-skill training Center.   We are also happy to take up donations from individuals.  We appreciate any size donations, they help with all of our programs, including the future job-skill training center.  Please use our “Donate” button here to donate.  

Your comments and feedback are always welcome.  Please feel free to email director@csebri.org to share your thoughts with us.
