Mentoring youth in ventura county
We are a nonprofit organization committed to making our community a better place by building leaders of the future.
At Vision Young Leaders' Academy we host a group hangout on the 2nd Friday of every month in order to build a supportive community filled with a variety of fun filled activities. One recent group hangout was at Skating Plus in Ventura. Even though falling seemed to be the theme of the evening for some of us, we had such a fun time roller skating and hanging out together.
Each quarter we hold a Vision Book Club. We select a current Young Adult Book and meet biweekly to discuss. We are currently reading Genesis Begins Again by Alicia D. Williams. Grab a copy of her book and join in!
We are committed to making our community a better place and have volunteer events throughout the year. This year our young members collected personal items for 100 hygiene bags to be distributed to displaced community members in Oxnard.
We had the pleasure of hosting Ms. Erica Alfaro as a guest speaker who shared her inspirational story with our group. Touching on many issues our members face, it was an honor to hear real life solutions and see the outcomes through her story. Our members learned so much about the importance of education and we hope they strive to do as well as Ms. Erica Alfaro.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference. Please donate below. Your donation is tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
