A student’s zip code should never determine their success. That’s why Elevate is working with cities and local leaders across the US. We are in seven cities currently and working on launching new locations every day. Read below to learn more about our affiliates and the communities they serve.

Colorado Uplift began in Denver in 1982. Now Elevate has expanded the program model to Orlando, Phoenix, Indianapolis, New England, New York City, Jacksonville, Dallas, and Metro KC. Click on each of our cities to learn more.
