Youth V.I.B.E., founded in 1996, is a United Way Community Partner. Youth V.I.B.E. provides free academic enrichment in math, science and reading to high school students in the Atlanta area. Our programs provide teens with interactive components to business mentoring including guest speakers and corporate tours.
Youth V.I.B.E. provides expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. The academic enrichment component of the Youth V.I.B.E. curriculum, designed by the distinguished Princeton Review, helps students achieve higher test scores in math, science and English. Certified teachers, college students and parent volunteers guide the students in pre and post testing to track their progress in those three core academic areas.
The business mentoring component of the curriculum is very interactive and relies heavily on collaborations with the business community. This component engages guest speakers discussing such topics as drug and violence prevention, technology, art, music, counseling and character education to enhance the academic component of the program. Business topics such as marketing, accounting, public speaking, community service, real estate investment, dressing for success, using debate to resolve conflicts, etc. are also addressed.
Youth V.I.B.E. facilitates tours to local businesses and industries, enabling teen participants to see first hand how businesses operate behind the scenes.
