Preschool Projects – First Start Initiatives
Preschools represent the genesis of education and wellness—children from infancy to four years old attend daily to learn and grow. VES provides teaching materials, supports instructors in training and teaches parents techniques for raising the healthiest children possible.
Elementary Schools – Challenge Initiatives
VES embraces a holistic approach to enrich the lives of elementary school students, teachers, parents and faculty members. Our goal is to make the school environment a culture that promotes educational and wellness advancements for the entire school community.
Youth Programs – Engage Initiatives
Afterschool youth programs give high school students a place of purpose and identity when the school bell rings. VES programs engage youth at the end of their school day and provide environments that advance academic character and cultural development
The Los Muermos Girls Home & Youth at Risk Center – Rescue Initiatives
The Home for Girls and Youth at Risk Center reminds us all that no matter what the situation, there is hope for a brighter tomorrow. This center serves as a residence for 20 girls and hosts day programs for youth at risk. VES helps these young people realize their dreams, hopes and aspirations by empowering them with life skills through educational, recreational and cultural opportunities. With a goal of success and independence for all youth, VES desires to make the center a safe, inspirational place of rediscovery and transformation.
