Project Elevate allows participants (ages 14 to 20) from Peekskill and the surrounding area to enhance their growth through education and awareness, pro-social engagement, community resource development, life skills training, college/career prep, and youth leadership development.
Project Elevate is designed to enhance the constructive use of leisure time, while at the same time, enabling the youth to reduce risk-taking behaviors, develop personal competencies, and strengthen their commitment to education and community.
Because of their participation in the Project Elevate program, youth will: graduate high school and/or obtain a TASC diploma; build civic responsibility; enhance their health and wellness; acquire work readiness skills; and establish healthy relationships. Project Elevate will inspire youth participants to look beyond the barriers in their lives and re-imagine a future filled with hope to achieve anything. Project Elevate will provide the necessary opportunity to keep our youth in a pipeline leading to a successful life.
