The Elevate Phoenix Lift for Success Scholarship Grant
In January 2014, the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation provided a grant to Elevate Phoenix that will support need-based scholarships for students who do not qualify for public assistance. Elevate Phoenix maintains a mentoring program that connects at-risk children and adolescents to adults who truly care about their well-being, among other initiatives. The nonprofit has changed the lives of countless young people in Arizona who have realized that through positive adult interactions, they can achieve their dreams.
The Elevate Lift for Success program has supported students as they transition from high school to college for the past four years. More than 100 young adults now participate in the program, which places them in a summer boot camp that prepares them for the rigors of college. The program boasts a 100 percent retention rate.
