About the Cultural Community Hub
The Cultural Community Hub was created to provide “a resource directory of ethnic, cultural and historical communities for use by educators and students for research and learning.” The Cultural Community Info Teleport Hub (CCH) located in the Whole Brain Health sim is a coordinated development of easy to access teleport links in the form of coordinated posters containing brief information and LM. More information including key informant interviews and resources are cross referenced in an attached library. The CCH is based on presenter’s published research and is envisioned to be arena for further planned multidisciplinary research in virtual worlds. Sims include communities of all kinds: educational technology, arts and sciences, worldwide cultures, representations of RL social issues, unique roles expressed in SL, and social support services.

Karen A. Lehman is the Executive Director of the Episcopal Actors' Guild of America (EAG). Founded in 1923, EAG is a charitable organization that provides emergency assistance and career support to local, professional performers "of all faiths, and none."
Professionally, Karen has spent her time pursuing two passions: being of service and the performing arts. After graduating from the University of Delaware, Karen worked in Student Affairs for both SUNY and Pennsylvania State University, as well as with Libetae, a woman's halfway house in her home state of Pennsylvania.
During this time, Karen also continued to perform on stage, eventually moving to New York to study at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre, and working as an actress for several years after that.
In 2006, Karen's two passions were brought together in one job when she was hired as the Assistant Director of EAG. Shortly after, in 2008, Karen was named Executive Director. Under her leadership, EAG has greatly expanded its programs and services to include The Headshot Project (free, professional headshots for clients of EAG) and The Actors' Pantry, which provides groceries to EAG clients and their families.
As Executive Director, Karen has also established a very active volunteer program as well as a successful program for Young Professionals.

As we learn at TheCenterPS.org, "The story of The Center (also known as The LGBT Community Center of The Desert) is one of success. This vibrant organization is undergoing a dramatic expansion to better serve our seniors, to embrace the diversity of our Valley, to build camaraderie, to provide wellness and social services – and to enrich the lives of the LGBT community. The magnitude of commitment to The Center’s mission in this community is striking. Through the contributions of our members, volunteers, donors, business partners, board and staff, we are addressing urgent needs of hunger, depression, isolation and building a community center that brings people together for health, for wellness, for socializing, for FUN and for a broad array of shared interests."
On May 21st, 2015, at the beautiful home of Palm Springs City Council Candidate Geoff Kors and his husband, Palm Springs Unified School Board Member James Williamson, The Center's Executive Director Mike Thomspon addressed existing and future members of The Center's Ocotillo Club (major donors) about how far the organization has come, and where it's headed. They say, "Be a part of this success story as it unfolds. Join us...You are welcome here."

The “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness” Program is dedicated to discussing the previously mentioned and other pertinent topics regarding proper planning before disaster strikes. The objective of the presentation is to identify problems, offer mitigating solutions to hazards, and share specific information essential to minimizing loss of life and maximizing faster rescue or recovery in affected regions or communities. There will be subject matter experts as guests in our future shows that will assist our listening audience with the latest knowledge, skills and ability to prepare for risk reduction and hopefully ensure our family’s safety.
There are at least two things certain about any natural or man-made disaster; it does not racially discriminate and it impacts all areas of people activity, i.e., economics, education, labor, law, politics, etc. Please join us and feel free to call-in at 323-927-2913. Let’s engage in thought provoking topics and courageous conversations of “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness”.

An Intervention- Kwathu Children’s Home: Gertrude, born to a young single girl, barely old enough to take care of herself, became a ‘mom’ to her 2 year old, half-brother, at a tiny age of 6 years. Gertrude and Linto were the ‘results’ of a young woman trying to survive through the only way she knew how, prostitution. Naturally, the two children were unplanned, and the young woman was certainly in no position to care for them. Having to fight for survival, Gertrude would wrap her little brother on her back and walk into the township and steal food. Someone noticed that these two children were in desperate need for care, and took action. 6 years have passed, and Gertrude and Linto have blossomed into two incredible children. They found their home, their foundation and their future.
Beats and Books: A similar story yet in another part of Africa is that of a young girl with little knowledge of her Mom's whereabouts. The death of her father had so little consequence as he was only a man whose last name she bears. Her name is Yonela which means "enough." She has no one to look to except the strangers in her life who have consistently shown her love and care and have become her family. Two years ago, through our intervention, Yonela was moved into a private school where she has learned quickly how to read and write. Every week, she spends atleast 9 hours learning musical skills and improving her literacy with people who believe in changing her circumstances in our after-school program. Yonela has begun to dream.

Nearly 70% of all African American infants are born to unwed mothers. Crime is rampant; it's projected that 28% of all African American males will be incarcerated in their lifetime. And then there's high unemployment, drug use, poverty, and deficiencies in education.
