Join us for the ELEVATE Orlando Virtual Vision Breakfast
March 4th at 9:00 AM ET
Ravago Americas is excited to invite you to attend a virtual event for one of our core community partners. The annual vision breakfast for Elevate Orlando will be a virtual event, allowing everyone the opportunity to participate live, or view the content at their convenience if they are challenged by time zone.
Elevate is an Orlando non-profit, dedicated to helping students in under resourced communities complete their education through high school, and graduate with a plan for the future. Most go on to attend college, with others choosing vocational schools or pursuing careers in the military.
Elevate has been fortunate to partner with Orange County Public Schools and become part of their elective curriculum, with students earning full credit for their participation towards graduation. Elevate currently serves 2000 students across 19 different elementary, middle and high schools, and employs 40 teacher mentors who provide 24/7 mentoring for every student. These mentors reflect their students, and the communities where they both live, and embrace the diversity of race and color that exist there.
Ravago Americas has been an active supporter of Elevate for about 5 years, sending financial support, extending sponsorship for events like the Vision Breakfast, and hosting job shadowing’s for students to demonstrate the great job opportunities that exist right here in Orlando.
Please visit the Elevate website www.elevateorlando.org for more information about the depth of experience available to students, and learn why we have a graduation rate of 100% for high school seniors. Attached is the online invitation for the vision breakfast, it will last less than an hour, and I promise it will touch your heart.
“I have personally served on the Elevate board of directors for the last three years, and I believe that our relationship with Elevate fits perfectly our desire to support opportunity, diversity and sustainable communities where we can all live and work.” ~ Steve Tomaszewski | Entec’s Senior Vice President & General Manager
ABOUT THIS EVENT
ELEVATE Orlando 2021 Virtual Vision Breakfast is an opportunity to meet our deserving urban youth as they share the positive impact ELEVATE has had in their life.
If you consider yourself successful, chances are somewhere along your journey there were people who encouraged or pushed you towards your potential. It may have been a parent, a teacher, a relative, or a mentor. Unfortunately, many of today’s urban youth lack this positive guidance, resulting in alarming dropout rates, teen pregnancy, and incarceration rates.
That’s where ELEVATE Orlando comes in; with meaningful relationships, opportunities, and experiences that shape students into the young adults we know they can become. By walking with students through, tough times, new experiences, college planning, and career vision, we take a lifelong, holistic approach, our full-time, salaried Teacher/Mentors are here for these students from elementary school through their college launch.
Building long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth, equipping them to thrive and contribute to their community.
