Children learn to write their name as early as 2 and 3 years young, so what are they writing at 5 and 6 years old. Youth Leaders Empowerment Foundation teaches students as early 5 years young how to write their very own children’s books. We will teach the fundamentals and foundation of sentence structure along with punctuation and rough drafts.
Foreign Language Program
While English has become the lingua franca of the world, learning a foreign language or two as a child can increase the opportunities and open many doors of bilingualism. When you speak to people in their own language, you deepen connections and understandings and that is the ultimate goal for our community.
With this program, we are creating our future Olympians right here at your fingertips by introducing and going beyond the customary sports in our local community.

Health & Wellness Program
Healthy body healthy mind! In our community we tend to shy away from fruits and vegetables, not realizing we can live off that alone, with a bit of protein. We have created cooking classes designed for children and parents, creating recipes that will keep children active and healthy!

Music plays a lofty role in our community today, more like our society. However, I am not sure if it is becoming a positive influence and or destroying our nation. Music is an art and can be formed in multiple ways, our youth has the passion to excel in anything they put their minds to; suzuki for starters. Mentorship will be provided in all programs as this is the ultimate purpose for our youth leaders. Spoken words, theatre, acting and drama all falls under the art and love for music.
Mentorship is provided throughout all our programs.
