“V-ELMS inspires children to dream, believe and build their future.”
V-ELMS achieves its GOALS through our proprietary Character Development curricula focused on five measurable magnets: RESPECT, INTEGRITY, PERSISTENCE, ENGAGEMENT and RESPONSIBILITY (RIPER). V-ELMS technology creates a more accessible means for the busy mentor to communicate with their mentee. These connections empower mentees with the skills and resources critical for personal, academic and career success.
- The V-ELMS model will enhance the educational, social and emotional trajectories of the mentees.
- V-ELMS assembles a core of mentors (volunteers) who are pivotal part to help mentees achieve goals.
- V-ELMS embedded our proprietary Learning Management System (LMS) on our CAMPUS website platform where the mentor/mentee teams communicate using V-ELMS curricula – Character Development magnets.
2017 “I give y’all a 10 because Mrs. Francis, Ms. Linda and Dr. Truitt are the best people I’ve ever known and y’all play a good role model for us kids and you inspire me to be a better person.”
2018 “V-ELMS introduced me to meet new people that teach us about life. Our mentor, Tenasia escorted Chelsi and myself to Attorney Les Salmon’s Office. He had come to one of our sessions to talk about what is needed to become a lawyer”.
The V-ELMS MODEL promotes partnerships between organizations and public schools with underserved youth to enter long-term one-on-one mentoring relationships with caring adults, to attend after-school tutorial sessions as a means to strengthen their skill sets and give them voice. The mentor/mentee team will be matched by their similar multiple intelligences. The teams communicate virtually during bi-weekly after-school sessions to discuss and write responses on V-ELMS proprietary five Character Development and Leadership curriculum. College tutors will be present during the after-school sessions assisting the youth with their individual writings. The mentor/mentee teams will meet FIVE TIMES at a monthly WORKSHOP working together on a STEM project after being introduced to one of the Character Development magnets. FOUR TRIPS are planned where the teams will engage together in a shared outing. After a year together as the relationships grow, the environment will foster a culture that prioritizes V-ELMS five key MISSION VALUES: TRUST, ENGAGE, SUPPORT, AWAKEN, INSPIRE.
2019 “When I first started V-ELMS I was upset because I had to do work. As I continued to come to V-ELMS I started to enjoy it! V-ELMS is a good place to go afterschool if you’re not doing good in school, you don’t feel good about yourself, or if you want to be successful in life. Also, I recommend that you to sign up for V-ELMS if you need that extra help, it’s free. Or, you want to do interesting things after school. V-ELMS exposed me to new things, and it helped me learn new things. I will definitely be coming back to V-ELMS for the next two years!”
V-ELMS VISION is panoramic in its approach to the development of the whole BIPOC child: strengthening the mental, social, emotional, and physical well-being, as well as inclusion of the child’s family in the process to secure completely the future success for each mentee.
V-ELMS EXPANSION to extend into public schools and other organizations that service BIPOC students.
