No one gets there alone

That’s why Elevate shows up

Our Mission

Building long-term, life-changing relationships with Indianapolis urban youth, equipping them to thrive and contribute to their community.

OUR VISION:
GENERATIONS OF THRIVING URBAN LEADERS

The Need

TRANSFORMATIVE RELATIONSHIPS

If you consider yourself successful, chances are, somewhere along your journey there were people who encouraged or pushed you towards your potential. It may have been a parent, a teacher, a relative, or a mentor.

Unfortunately, many of today’s urban youth lack this positive guidance, resulting in alarming dropout, teen pregnancy, and incarceration rates. That’s where Elevate comes in; with meaningful relationships, opportunities, and experiences that shape students into the young adults we know they can become.

Our Programs

MEETING KIDS WHERE THEY NEED US MOST

Elevate employs a holistic approach to meet each child’s needs. This means full-time salaried teacher-mentors, year-round programming, cross-age mentoring, and a long-term relational approach in four areas: accredited classes, mentoring, adventure, and college & career
