Mission & Vision


Our Mission

Our mission is to empower youth from underserved neighborhoods through regular outdoor experiences with the support of positive adult role models. 


Our Vision

Our vision for Elevate Youth is to break down barriers of access to nature for urban youth. We are not aiming to offer one-time help and get out; rather we intend to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards by providing consistent experiences in nature & sparking a lifelong love of the outdoors in the young people we serve.
