“V-ELMS inspires children to dream, believe and build their future.”
Transforming lives through character development, accessible mentorship, and enhanced educational trajectories
Cultivating character through proprietary curricula.
V-ELMS is dedicated to nurturing well-rounded individuals through our proprietary Character Development curricula. We believe in the holistic development of an individual, focusing on not just academic success but also on building strong character traits.
Facilitating mentor-mentee communication for busy schedules.
Our V-ELMS Learning Management System (LMS) initiates communication between the mentor-mentee teams. Through our innovative solutions, mentors can easily connect with their mentees, providing guidance and support in a way that fits into their dynamic lives.
Enhancing educational trajectories of mentees.
Our Educational Enhancement initiatives are at the heart of our mission: to create a supportive environment that strengthens the educational acumen of underserved students. We are dedicated to closing the achievement gap, bridging the digital divide, and fostering social capital.
What Our Students Say
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”.
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!”
