The Education of our Youth is Everybody's Business!  There are many ways you can take an active role in elevating students in your community.  Everyone has something to offer.



1.  START an Education Elevator Program between your Organization or Business and a local elementary school.



2.  VOLUNTEER - there are opportunities to suit everyone's schedule and interests. 

  •  Elevator -  commit to mentoring a student in your partner school for 30-45 minutes each week.  You can change the trajectory of a child's life in less than an hour a week!


  • Enrichment Volunteer - share your passions with a class or a school about topics and subjects that are of interest to you whether its music, art, photography or yoga.  (This could be a one time event or reoccurring).  


  • Read Aloud Volunteer - Share your joy of reading with students by reading to a classroom once a week, twice a month or whatever works with your schedule.  Children's intelligence is directly related to the number of words they hear - and books unlock their imagination.

3.  DONATE Online or by Mail - Donations can be made quickly and securely online through PayPal.  Click here to be taken directly to our donation page.   


Or, send a check payable to: Education Elevators Foundation and send to PO Box 11302 Charleston, WV 25339
