Earlier this year, we launched the Elevate Indianapolis IPS Indiana College Core Cohort, which aims to serve up to 200 students annually within five years. Elevate Indy launched the first IVYT dual credit “Intro to Elevate” cohort at Arsenal Tech in January 2023, with a second cohort at ATHS commencing in the 23/24 academic year. We plan to expand the course to other IPS high schools in the future. Learn more about college core.

Elevate Indy provides students with 24/7 access to wrap-around mentoring and support, including college and career programming, as part of its unique approach. IPS Elevate College Core students are enrolling in one additional Elevate course during their high school caterer to foster strong in-school and out-of-school relationships within the cohort.

In collaboration with IPS, we have introduced the Ivy Tech College Core program at Arsenal Tech High School. If you would like to learn more about this unique program and partnership please email info@elevateindy.org.


At Elevate we believe that Collaboration yields the best long-term results, acknowledging that the complex work in urban centers cannot be done single-handedly.

Therefore, Elevate seeks Community Engagement Partners who can collaborate together in the mission of building long-term, life-changing relationships with Indianapolis urban youth.

As a Community Engagement Partner, you will support Elevate through volunteerism, financial/in-kind support, and advocacy.

Jacobi, an Arsenal Tech High School Class of 2023 senior talks about how Elevate made him want to go to school.

He’s been in the Elevate program for 2 years and describes Elevate using one word – “love”.

His plans after high school are to work to own his own barbershop.

We’re proud of his success, and we look forward to continuing to support him as he moves past high school and into the workforce.
