Testimonials

What people say about us
  • The best thing about ELITE is that you get to meet new people and you learn how to respect others and be responsible.

    Student
    Elite High School Program
  • ELITE has changed my family life, mainly my kids and how they look at me. I can see the respect that my kids have for me since ELITE. It has been different since I’ve been released from prison, it has just changed my household completely.

    Program Graduate
    Elite Re-Entry
  • I really enjoy my time volunteering with ELITE. It helps me to connect to students in a meaningful way and reminds me that we all have choices as we go through life. I am very happy that I have chosen to volunteer with ELITE.
