B has been supported through Elevate for six months. B's attitude and approach to education was manifesting itself through negative behaviour choices. Through weekly personalised support, B was challenged and supported to improve his attitude. This led to a more positive approach with his education and behaviour at school. B has since been commended by the school for his change in attitude.
Elevate will support, nurture and champion:
the unique assets and experiences of each young person (and family) we work with. This will include developing adaptable and accessible relationships with each young person, their family and significant others.
a community approach to upcycling the assets, experiences and opportunities of each young person. The community approach will involve a range of skilled 'experts'; employees, local Police Officers, school teachers, youth workers, shop keepers, parents, faith leaders, doctors and nurses, peer groups and neighbours.
training and support in developing professional experience and social entrepreneurial opportunities, seeking to improve, restore and transform the skills, knowledge and prospects of local young adults through the development of a number of social enterprises.
Elevate seeks to change mind-sets, behaviour and lifestyles of young people, families and communities. Elevate seeks to create a legacy which brings inclusion and harmony in the community.
Elevate currently works with 14 young people. This will increase to 22 from September. Most the young people are referred via Oasis Academy South Bank. Elevate will use the nationally-recognised Outcomes Star framework to measure the change and impact Elevate has on each young person.
