ABOUT US

 

“V-ELMS inspires children to dream, believe and build their future.”

Our mission is to create a supportive environment that strengthens underserved students’ educational acumen to close the achievement gap, bridge the digital divide and promote social capital.

Through one-to-one mentorship, we help identify the multiple intelligences for each student to unlock their full potential. Start getting involved today!

Why We Serve

We serve because students drop out of school every year—but we’ve helped 99% of ours graduate 8th grade on time.

We serve because when children struggle at school, they can feel demoralized and depressed—but under the guidance of our mentors, they discover strengths they never knew.

We serve because children are explorers—and their potential to shine is unmatched.

Our program changes lives. It teaches children never to give up on themselves.

How We Work

We believe everyone learns their own way! We assess our mentees’ multiple intelligences, how they focus, process, absorb, and retain new information. Some do best by sight, others by hands-on activities.

Identification of their multiple intelligences is key to addressing strengths and weaknesses in the journey of learning.
