Elev8 Baltimore Review

Resource type: Research Report

Elev8 |

The Elev8 Baltimore Review, a publication from Atlantic grantee Elev8 Baltimore, shows how its range of programs are changing the odds for children, youth, and families in East Baltimore.

From after-school and summer enrichment programs to vital school-based health services and resources that help parents find employment, the Review details how far Elev8 Baltimore has come in the past three years. Read about a day in the life of Elev8 and learn about new initiatives planned to strengthen services and improve the long-term impact on students’ experiences and family stability.

Elev8’s Three Central Components

  • Learning
    After-school and summer activities support young people to help them improve attendance, gain confidence and advance academically.
  • Health
    School-based health services and health promotion programs offered to students and families are raising awareness of health needs – physical and emotional – and making it easier for families to take greater advantage of health services for their children.
  • Family Engagement
    Parents who are economically stronger and connected to other parents are more likely to be involved in their children’s learning. We offer families tools to achieve economic self-sufficiency, including access to workforce, housing and social service supports, and  opportunities to advocate for themselves and the community.
