Vendigm Foundation Initiatives
Initiative 1: To identify key areas of focus that will exponentially grow the amount of literate learners within the North Texas region.
Initiative 2: To recognize and reward students grade K-5 with our signature “Vendigm Achievement Party”. This monthly event will highlight students who have accomplished outstanding citizenship, exceptional education standards, improved behavior and most improved grades for the month. We will also work to provide essential learning tools to include school supplies, back packs, uniforms, books and computers.
Initiative 3: To serve as mentors and to encourage open discussions and dialogues amongst youth. The goals of our Vendigm mentors are to motivate and empower students, while building positive self-esteem and positive attitudes. Additionally, a monthly key note speaker will expose students to an array of career possibilities.
Initiative 4: To award (5) five high school students planning to study in the areas of math, science and/or technology with a $1,000 college scholarship.
Initiative 5: To provide summer internships with Vendigm Companies for students interested in working in construction, development, and/or real-estate.
Initiative 6: To team with programs that share a similar mission as the Vendigm Foundation so that we are able to increase the amount of inner-city lives we positively affect.
Initiative 7: To expose youth to local arts and culture organizations to promote the freedom of creativity, while showing the correlation and benefits of the arts to the areas of science, technology and creative problem solving.
