We build relationships with youth to promote education, self-reliance and achievement in the Parkrose School District. Through long-term, culturally responsive instruction and mentoring, we empower young people toward success and leadership, helping them become strong, positive influencers in the community.
Bottom Line for Portland
In the past year, Elevate worked with 600+ youth of color in Parkrose to develop the tools and habits they need for success. One hundred percent of the seniors enrolled in Elevate graduated, prepared to take on post-secondary challenges.
“Elevate Oregon is addressing the needs of our most challenged students and has brought new life to Parkrose with a diverse and skilled staff that has built trust with students who may not otherwise have been reached.” —Former Superintendent Karen Gray
