Elevate alumni have gone on to make big impacts in their home communities with the skills that were honed during their week at Gordon. Check out what past Elevate cohorts have done!
Project: F.E.E.D. (Food Education Enhances Diets)
"I have never been in a situation where I have learned to grow to love a group of people that quickly."
Project: Freedom Fellows (human trafficking awareness and prevention)
"You’re actually learning to work out world problems. You get to meet people from all over the world."
Project: Drop It, Don’t Pop It (awareness and prevention of prescription drug abuse)
"Elevate let me be really exposed to a diverse range of opinions, ideas and cultures. The whole experience was invaluable."
Project: Sex Trafficking Awareness
"I found what I was good at—being a listener. My role was to make sure all ideas were heard and also to connect the ideas of the group with what needed to be shown to the audience."
Project: English-language class for school-workers in Brazil
"Elevate helped me look at real-life issues. They are all around us and we just have to stop for a second and look at them. It completely changed the way I view things."
