Mission Statement

Our mission is to teach holistic approaches to enrich the emotional and physical well-being for middle to high school students across America.


Higher Ground was founded to address a humanitarian issue to support the lack of life skill curriculum to aid in the personal development of our future leaders. Specifically, we are servicing the community by lending a hand on how to choose hope through, Social emotional learning experiences. We’ve spent the last year building up our curriculum, designing programs for the community, and building a strong leadership team. This year we’re looking to raise $100K through the Take My Hand Fundraising Campaign.

What’s next? We are actively raising to support the operations of our summer theatre program launching in Los Angeles, CA July 2023. Our summer program is designed to teach life skills through the art of theatre. Students learn tips to help navigate our greatest performance, the role we play to ourselves. Students meet for three weeks, and learn how to face their fears on and off the stage with the help our amazing leadership team. Joy McElveen serves as the Theatre Director, Ashley Blanco our academic learning director and our partnerships director Ashten Fizer.
