Every child has a right to education, health, safety and support to help them reach their full potential. Elev8 focuses on changing public policy to close the gap between this vision and reality.

Elev8 brings together students, parents, community-based organizations, schools, government, philanthropy, business, national advocacy groups and service organizations to advocate for change. We work on local, state and federal levels to promote high-quality education, healthcare and economic stability for families.
