In 2014, VAI served over 200 kids. Our Youth Volunteers put in over 3900 hours.
We offer a range of services for youth, including:
- Computer Literacy
- Vocational Counseling
- Personal Mentoring
- Leadership Development
- Cultural and Recreational Activities
We work closely with local schools and parents to provide information and support.
In 2014, VAI’s Youth Program increased its enrollment from the previous year. Most of our participants maintained high marks in school. Three students received the Asian American Youth Leadership Award from the State of Illinois Comptroller.
VAI’s 2014 Summer Program enrolled 105 students, who learned English, Math, and Life Skills with the help of our 32 dedicated Youth Instructors from After School Matters.
But the VAI Youth Program is not just about work; it’s also about play. Our recent field trips included fun at:
- Lincoln Park Zoo
- Chicago Children’s Museum
- Foster Beach
- Waveland Bowl
- Chuck E. Cheese
