Elevate VISTA - Partnerships and Program Development
Elevate Tutoring advances social justice by bridging economic and achievement gaps on the path to-and-through college. We provide training, work experience, and scholarships to socioeconomically-disadvantaged first-generation college students - our Tutor Fellows - who, in turn, provide high-quality STEM tutoring, mentorship, and growth mindset coaching to their younger peers in middle and high school. Our proven and proprietary approach emphasizes asset-based mentorship, metacognitive approaches for both tutors and tutees, and the value of paying it forward. San Jose, where Elevate operates, is the 10th largest city in the United States and 3rd largest in California alone (San Jose Demographics and Diversity 2017). Home to corporate giants like Google, Apple, and Facebook, Silicon Valley is a mecca for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); yet, statistics by the United States Census Bureau reveal stark differences in educational attainment by race and economic status. While schools in our region are valiantly attempting to close the gap, outcomes are significantly different for low-income families compared to affluent families. The Partnerships VISTA will strengthen existing partner sites, develop a strategy for selecting and onboarding new partner sites, and assist in creating new community networks. This will deepen Elevate’s impact by offering services where they are most needed, improve efficacy of service delivery at existing partner sites, and increase efficiency of service delivery to Tutor Fellows.
