In 2015 we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary and we are so excited about reaching this milestone.

The Village Group is still committed to providing high quality summer and after-school enrichment programs that support children and families. We believe in literacy and helping to inspire and encourage students to appreciate the value of being lifelong learners. We are focused on improving academic and social success of youth in grades 1-9 with an emphasis on STEM programs. The goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment while at the same time help to improve performance on standardized tests and increase the number of students who graduate from high school. We further believe that in the long term this will help improve their career opportunities and life success.

Without the support of our volunteers and donors, the success of our participants and the enhancement of The Village Group’s programs would not be possible. Please “Like” us on Facebook to receive timely information.

On behalf of our board, volunteers and participants, please accept our sincere appreciation for your continued support and financial contributions.
