ELEVAR Case Management Program
The ELEVAR Case Management Program provides culturally relevant intervention to youth.
ELEVAR provides support, mentorship, and celebrate scholars as they navigate educational institutions. Our services include but are not limited to monthly 1:1 case management sessions and restorative community circles. Through restorative community practices, scholars learn to trust and bond with their peers ultimately creating a sense of belonging and connection to their community. Integrated into our program services model, is an exploration of youths’ cultural identity through an applied ethnic studies framework. These elements combined will further strengthen their sense of identity, all necessary traits to counter the school to prison pipeline.
