Currently 8.5 million US citizens are unemployed. We wanted to learn more about the contextual disability of unemployment. We learned that giving people skills is more valuable than placing them in jobs. We created elevate to give people the tools and resources they need to enter the workforce.
Elevate lives on a truck which is the platform for all of our services. Elevate offers workshops such as interview skills and resume building. Also, Elevate provides mentors that help with connections, support, and guidance. The elevate truck lives in a warehouse and it provides an address for job application. Elevate goes to different locations to meet the needs of different types of people, it’s a service that comes to you.
