  OUR HISTORY: The African American Cultural Association (AACA) is a non-profit organization founded at Kirtland AFB in 1985 with a goal of promoting self-respect and educational development in ALL our youth regardless of ethnicity within the Albuquerque area.


Our first major project was the recognition of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Kirtland AFB. This since has gown into a Kirtland AFB sponsored program. We are now devoted to our 5 different programs, highlighting our Summer Magic Program. This program provides a light hearted exposure to math, science and other academics subjects in a recreational environment for 4-6 weeks during the summer.
OUR MISSION/GOAL: Working in association with the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) and others, the African American Cultural Association’s mission and goal is to give academic, cultural and social support to children in grades K-12, who are from homeless or low-income families in the greater Albuquerque area. These students are at-risk for academic failure and behavioral issues that affect of the community as a whole. Through our Community Academic Initiative Resource (C.A.I.R.) we are able to align students’ academic needs  for improvement in math, language arts and science with APS standards, as well as Health/Wellness, Drugs/Alcohol and Life Skills Training.
