We also have professional personal who attend to mentor the students. We are always open to new students with fresh ideas and questions. Please join us this month! VIDEO
Youth Leadership Empowerment
Due to the nature of the work environment in the United States there is little time available for the young people to learn at the feet of the older generation or their parents. This program brings together respected elders in the community for a healthy discussion. The program is designed to provide the older generation an opportunity to pass on their legacy to the next generation
College Visits and Educational Field Trips.
V4A takes multiple college visits throughout the year. If you are interested in visiting a University in St. Louis please sign up. If the college you would like to visit is not listed please contact us. We provide transportation to all visits.

The F4Kidz program is for Kindergarten – 12th grade. Throughout the year we take trips to the St. Louis science center and The Mansanto center. Starting in April we have a soccer program with practice and games once a week. In Our Soccer program we teach kids the fundamentals of soccer, but also strive to help children build confidence and recognize the value of hard work, teamwork and persistence in achieving personal goals. By learning what it takes to play a team sport, kids are also being prepared to be productive citizens.
