We deliver long-term,
life-changing relationships with urban youth.
Across America’s hard-to-serve urban areas, public school students drop out of school in alarming numbers, and for those that do graduate, the road to post-secondary education is filled with obstacles. Too many of America’s high school students are underserved and, as a result, are underperforming.
A large majority of urban youth lack even one caring adult in their lives, leading directly to increased crime, gang, drug activity and other roadblocks to self-sufficiency. The Elevate Phoenix model has proven effective in changing these trends and transforming the lives of our city’s youth. It is our goal to change the outcome for our future leaders.
We will continue to be Hope Holders until they can hold that hope for themselves.
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 school dropouts, teen pregnancy and higher incarceration rates. This is where Elevate Phoenix comes in. We provide meaningful relationships, opportunities and experiences that shape students into the young adults we know they can become.

Elevate Phoenix 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, reading & literacy, and graduation and post-secondary plans.
Our 5th Annual “Elevator In Education” Awards Luncheon was a HUGE success! We raised over $93k! Watch the video below for a very special “Thank You” message from Ann Meyers Drysdale.
