A Word From Our Partners

"This is the next generation. They are going to take over our businesses. They are going to serve our clients after we retire. I want to make sure they are ready. I want to do the most I can, while I can."

Steve White, Real Estate Broker

"I hope that students feel encouraged hearing my story and how I got into the field and what I’m doing with my career now… That they just feel encouraged to pursue those things and to not feel discouraged when their path towards something doesn’t quite look like their classmates or their friends around them."

Erica Smith, Dental Hygienist

"I think VLACS, the opportunities that you have available for your students, is fantastic because it provides for open dialogue. I had great questions. It keeps me on my toes. It is a great opportunity for anyone in any sector."

Jennifer Landon, VP of Education and Workforce Development

"I think it is tremendously valuable to maintain that connection to the community, to maintain that connection to the youth and their ideas."
