Serving Eastside Students at Arsenal Tech & Purdue Poly-Englewood | Elevate Indianapolis

Our 2023-2024 Elevate Indy program theme is “Elevate Their Community, Elevate Our City,” and we have been living out that theme this program year at each of our school pipeline programs.

Our Eastside pipeline is comprised of two high schools, Arsenal Tech and Purdue Poly-Englewood including students from these zip codes: 46203, 46201, 46218, 46226, 46219, 46229 and others. Through this pipeline, we serve nearly 150 students in grades 9th-12th through in-school and out-of-school programming and our students have received over 3,260 Teacher-Mentor mentoring hours. This equates to an average of 25 hours of in-school and out-of-school life on life mentoring, character, and life skills classes, college and career opportunities, and sports and adventure.

The impact of our Elevate Indianapolis Eastside Pipeline programming far extends beyond the classroom, and in the video below, you’ll hear from Elevate Indy CEO & President Aaron Story, Board Member Amandula Anderson, Teacher-Mentor Josh Mendoza, Teacher-Mentor Mandy Schumerth, Student Anthony, and Student London who all share their perspective of Elevate’s impact on the eastside of Indianapolis.
