XA members learn and grow together and also have fun while fostering a sense of community. We create an environment where young people feel supported as they discover their unique talent and interests, while building a personal and professional network.
American entrepreneurship has always been a key component to the fabric of the country, it serves a similar purpose within XA programming. Through a small clothing line, XA members learn about marketing/branding/sales/design, but more importantly they are introduced to other local entrepreneurs and get to interact and learn from them during experiential learning field trips.
Through community "chores" or service projects, XA members learn about civics through action. XA members take care in community/family and self. By learning about civics XA members begin to learn what it means to be a productive and active participant in our democracy.
