Graduating Seniors Testify to Elev8’s Strengths
Resource type: Video
LISC Chicago |
Watch four high school seniors reminisce about their middle-school experiences with Elev8, a community schools initiative helping to prepare sixth- through eighth-grade students for high school and beyond.
Through the Elev8 program, these students participated in after-school activities, used the health centers built at their school, and benefitted from increased engagement of their parents in school activities.
All four plan to attend college in the fall, along with many of their classmates at Perspectives, which boasts high college enrollment rates.
