ELEVATE YOUR G A M E
April 15, 2011

I have been a Board Member since the beginning of Elevate Your Game and every year as I reflect on the lives of the youth that are being affected by their work, my heart is filled with joy. Students in urban high schools, are being guided by adults and peers to improve and strengthen their grades, attendance and maturity, as they become more empowered in shaping their own destiny. They are learning that they possess the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical capacity to accomplish whatever they desire, now and in the future. They have a multitude of opportunities to learn, grow and give back through service projects. Best of all, they are able to pass on what they are learning to their peers. Elevate Your Game is a wonderful non-profit for today's youth.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the testimonies of the students that have participated and watching the pride on the faces of their parents, as they realize what their children have achieved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand its reach into areas that would continue to empower our youth (e.g. literacy development).

MY ROLE:
Board Member & As a Board Member, we have many opportunities to support our youth and participate in activities designed for their growth.
