About Us

Who We Are

Elevate​ ​International​ ​is​ ​built ​on​ ​the​ ​principles​ ​of​ ​love,​ ​responsibility​ ​and​ ​community. 

Many incredible organizations are supporting young women and girls and are addressing different challenges. At Elevate International, we do not believe that any of these organizations are competition. On the contrary, we are grateful for each and every one of them.

Our primary responsibility is to continuously provide women and girls with the best programs and conferences in the world. Our focus is on this commitment and our commitment to building leadership learning and developmental opportunity. It’s through strong partnerships with those dedicated to supporting women and girls that we accomplish this objective.

Programs & Conferences

While national programs are amazing, we also believe that the great majority of young women never get the opportunity to participate in national events due to limited funding and opportunities.To elevate girls we are committed to host provincial and national leadership conferences for young women every year.
