The WLVAC’s goal is to produce healthy and responsible citizens, with steadfast discipline, the resilience to manage emotional and physical growth, and the integrity and pride to become dynamic community ambassadors through cultural and performing arts.

The eight-week, arts-intensive, leadership program culminates in the presentation of several community productions that are free and open to the public. PVAC applications will be available at the WLVAC beginning April 22, 2015, and must be submitted in person to the WLVAC cultural team.
