This website is a work-in-progress and a labor of love built and maintained by our ADVScholars students, ages 8 to 16 years old. We welcome all K-12 learners to join us!
Hello and welcome to the ADVScholars Youth Program!
Who are we? We are the Academy of Digital Visionaries and Scholars, better known as ADVScholars. We are FAITH-FILLED, TECH-INFUSED, 10X GEN[ERATION] YOUTH!
Our Foundational Scripture: Daniel 1:20, "And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm."
What we do?
1) We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization created to help eradicate the barriers to wealth creation and economic empowerment caused by the digital divide.
2) We specialize in building pathways to high-tech, global skillsets for all students, especially those in underserved communities.
3) We provide ongoing training, support and resources to develop and equip world-class leaders from the classroom to the boardroom for the glory of God.
What do we do in the Saturday classes? Well, we do lots of things. Our ADVScholars Youth Council helps lead the class and sets the agendas. The ADVScholars Parent-Teachers bring curated lessons to the table. Mrs. Valentine, our Founder, brings technical, digital literacy, coding and online learning platforms and many other resources to the families of ADVScholars. Her goal is to educate the family unit and to help them learn and master the digital skills needed in today's world.
