Elev8: Opportunity for Empowerment
Resource type: Video
Elev8 is a community-based initiative that brings together schools, nonprofits, philanthropy, parents and members of the community to ensure that students have the resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
Implemented in four locations nationwide, the initiative is designed to improve educational, social and economic outcomes for middle school students and their families.
Elev8 extends learning opportunities for students beyond the classroom and traditional school year, ensures children have access to high-quality health services, and meaningfully engages parents and communities in schools. The initiative also encourages students, families and partners to become active advocates for strengthening schools and addressing other important issues in their communities.
The Atlantic Philanthropies would like to thank the video producers, Firelight Media, as well as the Elev8 sites, schools, parents and students who participated in the filming.
