This month we spotlight our children’s education and community schools program Elev8 Baltimore. Elev8 Baltimore is an educational enrichment program that ensures students in the middle grades (5-8) succeed in school and in life. Launched in 2009, Elev8 Baltimore provides out-of-school time opportunities, school-based health services, and resources, support, and outreach for the families they serve. By partnering with schools and the surrounding community, Elev8 works to ensure that every student is ready to succeed in high school and beyond.
- We engage families and students so that they can be effective advocates for themselves and their communities
- We provide coordinated services and opportunities that every child needs and deserves
- We work to change the policies and practices of schools, government agencies, community organizations and others to strengthen their focus on student success
