Community Service

Foundation of our academy is to "Serve" and teach kids the value of "Giving" as we did our first community service project for USO Missouri at St. Louis Airport back in 2015 to donate items for in transit reserves active, reserve, retirees and national guard military members and their families. Since inception, we have been performing non-stop monthly service projects and in year 2017 we have spent around 19000+ volunteer hours and completed following community service projects. Our project span from serving food to homeless, volunteering at local food banks, recycle, clean and conserve nature to long term education sponsorship.
