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 – Inspire to Dream.

 

We serve because students drop out of school every year—but we’ve helped

  • 99% of our 8th graders graduate on time
  • 90% First time V-ELMERS imPROVE THEIR ACADEMICS
  • 89% STUDENTS REMAIN WITH US TILL COLLEGE

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.
