The feature of any Community is kids, so the VOTM will build their foundation by supporting our kids’ education and the home life of each child. We will create a mentoring program with volunteers that can be more than a phone call, but will show up to the school, for PTA meeting, and teachers counseling. They must be the guiding path of the youth in our community to help change the lives.
The driving platform for this program is the education through the after school program with African History Classes. This type of support will have a great impact on our kids. We must also Police our communities, with the changes that the VOTM will be making in the community, we will have to provide protection of our communities and businesses.
