Every year, more than 1.2 million students drop out of high school in the United States alone. That’s one student every 26 seconds – or 7,000 a day.
Bureau of Labor Statistics
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that students who graduate from high school earn almost $10,000 more/year than those who don’t.
The government spends between $1.7 & $2.3 million per dropout who turns to drug or crime over the
course of his/her lifetime.

I have had the kind of team that every person who chases any kind of dream needs in order to reach their potential. I have been amazingly blessed by the people who have been given to me in my life and who have poured all that they have had into me.
This is why I believe in and am committed to Elevate Phoenix. Elevate is all about providing the kind of guidance and influence in the lives of disadvantaged youth. This organization is near and dear to my heart because their mission and process is one that I believe in. I believe a key factor in the development and growth of a community, state and our nation starts with our youth.
Elevate is all about providing guidance and influence in the lives of disadvantaged youth.
