The Saturday Academy is designed to provide an outlet and assistance to children, youth and families in the areas of computer and academic literacy, to offer personal interactions and dialog, to address every day issues and concerns that children and families encounter on a daily basis, and to seek ways to provide help in eradicating the same. This is also a time for developing social skills, etiquette, building self-esteem and love for oneself. A variety of interactive activities will be incorporated in the schedule aimed at developing the community by empowering children and families to become self-loving and self-sufficient through vocational and technical skills programs, community input and involvement, networking and connecting with state and local government and community partners.

Further, this initiative seeks to aid in the advancement of social skills, educate the participants relative to personal hygiene, and serve as a nurturing agent for the whole person pursuing their fullest potential. Through the various partnerships and networking sessions, this initiative further seeks to encourage the participants to focus on making healthy choices, being responsible, provide guidance and direction toward further educational studies whether in academic studies or technical training, and to assist in setting short-term and long-term goals.
