EDUCATION ELEVATORS FOUNDATION
HOME | educationelevators
The mission of the Education Elevators program is to elevate the abilities and aspirations of students – to make them more confident in themselves and receptive to learning.
How Does the Education Elevator Program Work?
The Education Elevator program connects a West Virginia-based business or organization with a local school to create a mutually beneficial partnership. Volunteers (“Elevators”) from the partner organization mentor students who attend the partner school. Elevators meet with their assigned student for 30-45 minutes each week at the school during regular school hours.
Research has shown that the presence of a caring adult role model is the most important determinant in who and what a child becomes.
