News & Updates



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.

The Need

transformational 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 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.

Our Programs

meeting kids where they need us most

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.
