Program Explained

The V(i)llage™ was created to help students prepare for college while focusing on their holistic development in K-12 educational learning spaces.

The V(i)llage™ is a college pathways leadership bridge program designed to develop student leaders, bolster positive academic outcomes, increase school involvement, encourage communal engagement, teach self-advocacy and elevate cultural pride. We focus on inclusive-minded students, of varied cultural backgrounds, who are currently attending middle-, and high school students. Baseline program outcomes include: increased GPA, lower truancy, school involvement and heightened leader efficacy.

The V(i)llage™ is an empirical-based example of how engaging students at the holistic level increases their involvement in and outside of K-12 classrooms. Program results are connected to a 32 week rigorous interactive curriculum. Participating in our program translates into having a positive mindset, embodying behaviors that celebrate academic achievement, cultural pride and communal giveback. We teach students how to be successful!
