About Us

Elevate Youth Solutions was developed to address the need for the innovative and effective adoption of life-skills among pre-teens, teens, and young adults. Our programs were designed with the help of highly trained professionals from the fields of professional life coaching, clinical psychology, social services, and education. We have been facilitating Elevate programs on elementary, middle, and high school campuses throughout northern California since 2018.
