Resource + Opportunities + Community


For students to be successful, schools need willing partners to provide the “outside-of-the-classroom” things that all children need and deserve.

Launched in 2009, Elev8 Baltimore is an initiative working to ensure that Baltimore students have those very things.

Elev8 Baltimore uses a community schools model to provide out-of-school time opportunities, school-based health services, and resources, support and outreach for families.

Community schools use a strategic set of partnerships and opportunities layered into a school to affect the conditions of learning for the students there. Successful community schools employ a full-time coordinator who works in close partnership with the school’s principal—and alongside the community’s youth-and-family centered programs—to provide resources and opportunity that otherwise might not be within the students’ reach.

Elev8 Baltimore partners with schools and the surrounding community to make sure that every student is ready to succeed in high school and in life.

Here are just a few of the success stories from Elev8 Baltimore’s work in Baltimore’s schools around out-of-school time, health and family engagement.
