Elevate Youth exists to transform and enrich the lives of children and youth through relationships, education, and Biblical truths.
We know that life change happens best in the context of community. Children need relationships that are supportive, and which also hold them to high expectations.
We want to see all children equipped for a successful and full life, and to experience a variety of safe, fun, and educational experiences. We partner with existing organizations that provide high-quality programs. But in neighborhoods that need (but lack) specific programs, we work with local community leaders to providing those services.
Above all, we know that transformation happens through an understanding of and belief in the Good News of Jesus Christ. Children need to know that they are created special in the image of God, that our sinful natures bring harm to ourselves and others, and that salvation is a free gift of God through His Son Jesus.
