Accredited Classes

Full time teacher-mentors teach ACCREDITED ELECTIVE  classes in public high schools. These classes incorporate 13 vital character qualities and life skills into our daily classroom curriculum through experiential learning, group activities and discussions. These qualities and skills are designed to develop the personal character, leadership abilities and capabilities needed for success. Click here to learn more about the Elevate curriculum.



Teacher-mentors spend 50% of their time mentoring high school students after school, on weekends and throughout the summer. They pay attention to the WHOLE CHILD, discovering their talents, interests and hopes for the future, and then investing in those through activities and time together. Our after-school partners offer extended mentoring, enabling us to reach deeper into the lives of our students. 



Elevate students develop teamwork and leadership skills year-round by participating in activities after-school, on weekends, and during the summer. These programs allow students to build confidence in their own abilities by exploring experiences outside their comfort zone. This adventure component also challenges students to utilize their in-classroom training in practical ways.

Building Character and Life Skills

The Elevate Curriculum focuses on key character qualities and life skills which are fully aligned with Common Core State Standards and Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) Competencies. Students collaborate through experiential learning, group activities, and discussions. Cross-age mentoring occurs when high school students teach similar lessons to elementary school students weekly.
