Elevate Youth is a nonprofit organization operating in the Boston and greater-New England area that uses the outdoors and positive adult mentorship to empower underprivileged kids. EY was born from the realization that so many kids in these communities did not have access to the outdoors and were missing out on all the health benefits and positive life lessons learned from being outside. EY seeks to highlight and correct the severity of this inequity.
From Elevate Youth:
“We are thrilled to announce Elevate Youth’s first virtual fundraiser: a virtual outdoors challenge.
With Boston Public School’s starting the school year remote, and screen time for youth increasing steadily, Elevate Youth is doubling down on our mission to get more kids outside. Following the success of our Local Parks Program this summer, we are excited to come up with new, creative ways to bring the outdoors into the communities we serve this upcoming fall.
We invite our Elevate Youth family to support us in this mission, and have fun along the way!
Beginning on September 18th, join the Elevate Youth Community in a 10-day virtual event that includes exclusive offers, custom swag bags, a raffle, and a virtual awards ceremony!”
