About Us

MISSION: Building long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth, equipping them to thrive and contribute to their community

In Bridgeport, a large majority of urban youth lack even one caring adult in their life, leading directly to increased dropout rates, unemployment, crime, and other roadblocks to their success. Elevate has proven effective in changing these trends and transforming the lives of our nation’s youth.  Elevate Bridgeport is launching using the same model that has been successful across the U.S. to help change the outcomes for students in our city.
