Elevate Indianapolis


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


Elevate Indianapolis, a teaching and mentoring program grounded in Elevate USA’s nearly 40-year relational model, builds on students’ inherent strengths and potential. With its year-round, holistic approach, Elevate connects Indianapolis Public Schools [IPS] students to a comprehensive pipeline of support through its teacher-mentors beginning in elementary school, continuing into middle school, flowing through high school and into post-secondary pursuits. Elevate invests early, consistently, and long-term in the lives of its students. Elevate’s Eastside Pipeline links Arsenal Technical High School, H.L. Harshman Middle School, and Theodore Potter Elementary School #74, while its Westside Pipeline engages George Washington High School and Matchbook Learning at Wendell Phillips School #63, kindergarten to 8th grade.
