Elev8 Baltimore is an initiative working in Baltimore to ensure that 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 we serve.
Elev8 Baltimore partners with schools and the surrounding community to make sure that every student is ready to succeed in high school.
We work in three key ways:
- 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; and,
- We work to change the policies and practices of schools, government agencies, community organizations and others to strengthen their focus on student success.
