We create coaching communities that change lives.
Elevate is a coaching and mentoring charity that works with young people to improve their self-concept, raise their aspirations and help them build skills, whilst reducing their levels of disengagement with education and society.
We currently operate through several projects to affect change in our community, and offer further bespoke services when needed.
Near Peer Coaching
A near peer coaching approach is when a more experienced student acts as the coach and colloborates with their coachee from a position of knowledge and experience, enhancing coachee engagement.
Coach & Be Coached
Learn to coach or be coached. We deliver practical bespoke & bite-size courses for schools, community groups and businesses. We also offer 1-1 coaching. All this is on a gifting basis. All donations go toward operational costs in delivering our charitable aims. Support us, to support you, and in turn, support others.
Just some of our results
This is what some of our participants say about themselves following participation in one of our projects. These results are often reinforced by educational staff, who similarly report significant differences in attitude and effort of program participants.
