Long-Term Relationships │ 24/7 │ 365

Research tells us that young people need at least one caring, long-term and positive adult relationship in order to have a "statistically meaningful chance at a productive life.” Elevate’s full-time staff and mentors provide this significant adult relationship, giving students a sense of fulfillment and security that goes beyond the confines of the classroom. We are available to our students 24/7 year round, via phone and email.

Getting a meal together, going to a school game, doing community service, attending a cultural event – these are some of the ways Elevate staff spend time with students outside of school hours and off campus, building relationships when and where it matters.

Giving Back: High school students learn to give back to their communities by mentoring younger students each week, teaching and sharing what they themselves have learned.
