What We Do

Elevate The Life Skills Program



To elevate the life skills and abilities of inner-city student-athletes in America through mentor-based programs in athletic, academic and social development.


ELEVATE Leadership Program
The ELEVATE Leadership Program (ELP) is a free, application-based enrichment program for select 7th-12th grade student-athletes.  ELEVATE Leadership Program members participate in a daily mix of athletic, academic and social development activities on an individual and small group basis.  The goal for each ELP student-athlete is matriculation at a high-performing four-year university.  Since 2008, the ELEVATE Leadership Program has sent 19 alumni to college on partial or full scholarships.
