CONNECTING PEOPLE TO NEEDED RESOURCES

OUR MISSION

The mission of Elite Skills Development is to connect people to resources. We provide educational programming, mentoring, and arts and cultural services to at-risk and underserved residents.

 

Through these services our participants work to create pathways to self-sufficiency, improve their overall wellbeing and health, and build healthy,

productive communities.


We operate all of our programs through a culturally responsive, racially just, healing-centered and trauma-informed approach centered on the collective healing and resilience of our participants.
