We Mentor the Whole Student
By walking with students through school, tough times, new experiences, college planning, and career vision, we can take a lifelong, holistic approach. We are here for these students from elementary school through their college launch.
This Approach Works
98% CUMULATIVE GRADUATION RATE OVER 10 YEARS
ELEVATE Orlando students have the support to complete high school boasting a 100% graduation rate in the past 3 years.
3 HIGH SCHOOL PIPELINES
ELEVATE Orlando works with Jones High School, Evans High School, and Oak Ridge High School along with the middle and elementary schools that feed those high schools to create a “pipeline” of mentorship.
96% PLACEMENT RATE
Students who are given the tools, personal attention, and hope needed in high school go on to succeed in college, vocational school, and the military.
From 2nd Grade to Seniors in High School, ELEVATE works to move over 1,500 students toward success each week. These students are a part of over 70 Elevate after-school/extra-curricular events per year.
6,500 HOURS OF MENTORSHIP
We believe in one-on-one relationships. ELEVATE students have someone there to listen, teach, guide, understand, and help them succeed. We mentor students in 16 Orange County Public Schools while in partnership with over 40 businesses in the area.

We expose students to greatness
ELEVATE’s unique, relationship-based approach employs full-time staff who represent the community they serve. Part teacher, part mentor, part life coach, our dedicated team members make themselves available 24/7 to build relationships with students. The strength of these relationships is developed through four key program components.
