DONATE TO ELEVATION ATHLETIC TRAINING
There are three levels of enrichment programs. We will raise money through donations, gifts, and grants for each program. As our participants progress through the educational and athletic system we will monitor and assist them. Elevation will require them to maintain a level of excellence in the classroom, at home, and in our program.
1. ELEVATING LIFE SKILLS
All children need to learn some basic skills as they progress in life. We will provide them with the necessary skills, tools to help them in their daily life. Some of the areas we will cover are greeting skills such as handshakes, eye contact, proper posture, and my favorite – a confident smile and demeanor.
2. ELEVATING MIND, BODY AND SOUL
For most of our kids, the choices they have are limited – what they eat, what they see every day, and how the negative impulses affect their decisions. Elevation will help them see through the false reality and push through the negativity with a plan of action. Having the information on proper nutrition and learning to make better food choices along with proper exercise will increase their health and fitness level, as-well-as decrease some the health problems our youth are faced with every day. Mentally and physically we need to give a tremendous amount of positive reinforcement and show examples of how to stay focused on the goals they have set for themselves. See beyond your circumstances.
3. DEVELOPING URBAN AGRICULTURE
This program will be a great educational opportunity for the participants to learn to grow the food they eat. The benefits are enormous starting with farm-to-table awareness, skill building, working with nature, learning how to prepare and eat healthy foods. These experiences will give our kids a sense of ownership over the source of their food and how it affects their body. Indirectly also impacting the negative cultural influences leading to obesity and diabetes.
