Elevate Brevard is a collaboration of community partners working together to elevate the lives of Brevard residents by increasing their access to post-secondary educational opportunities and sustainable employment.
Launched in 2020, the partnership is part of the Florida College Access Network (FCAN) and utilizes a collective impact model to identify and assist households living below the Federal Poverty Level, as well as those in the ALICE population, or “working poor,” as defined by the United Way.
THE GOAL: Increase college and credential attainment rates while closing employer skills gaps and elevating families out of poverty. Elevate Brevard will be piloted in the city of Cocoa, with a goal to expand the program in Brevard County.
