A growing youth program in inner-city Phoenix aims to pair teachers and mentors with struggling students to help them stay in school.
Elevate Phoenix provides in-school teaching, after-school mentoring, tutoring, career instruction, and peer leadership development. The organization’s programs help youth stay in school, graduate, and enroll in post-secondary education.
