Here’s what students have to say about Elevation
“I have never been in such a place where I could be myself and not have to worry about being laughed at for not fulfilling others’ standards.” Bradley, Class of 2013
“My favorite things about Elevation was the simulation that we did and the people that I met, and the mentors that were there!” Kenzi, Class of 2013
“The best thing about Elevation was the environment. The kids were so friendly and open, such great teamwork opportunities, we weren’t so pressured with time, there were chances to be alone for personal thought and meditation.” Joseph, Class of 2013
“When we didn’t want to do a hard challenge, our new friends would gently push us and help us past our wall of fear.” Kirsten, Class of 2012
“The aspect of Elevation I enjoy most is that it gives me the chance to get in touch with the real me; and not only that, but I get to see the real character of my classmates throughout everything, too. To see a classmate saying a prayer before bed, or making friends with someone who feels left out, or to just really care; those are all things that might be witnessed at Elevation that have affected me.” Andrew, Class of 2011
