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.
