What We Do
Elev8® brings together schools, families and other community partners in low-income areas — to ensure that students succeed in middle school and beyond.
Part of a growing movement of community schools around the country, Elev8:
Individually, these components play a pivotal role in children's lives. Elev8 thoughtfully integrates them because we believe an approach that considers the whole child and their family will have the greatest impact.
We focus on the middle grades because those years are a time of critical transition for young people. Elev8 aims to ensure that by the time students finish 8th grade, they are prepared for high school and go on to graduate.
Elev8 looks different in every participating school, as community members identify local needs and create solutions. Students and families become advocates for improving education and expanding access to critical resources in their community.
