What Fellows are saying about the program:

“Participating in Elevate Denver was an invaluable experience and gave me a deeper understanding of how nonprofits operate as a whole.Most importantly, the program expanded my network within the nonprofit community and connected me with a professional mentor. “
Natasha Pepperl
Elevate Denver Inaugural Fellow
“The Elevate Denver experience is the first leadership experience I have participated in strictly focused on the nonprofit sector. The unique learning sessions bring young professional leaders to help engage and educate the future leaders of the sector. Not only did I gain a deeper understanding of the sector but I met individuals who will be my peers and mentors for the rest of my professional journey.”
Josh Gold
Elevate Denver Inaugural Fellow
As a relatively new nonprofit professional, I saw Elevate Denver as an opportunity to dive head first into the field. Not only was the program a chance to get to network with some of Denver’s brightest young nonprofit professionals, it also gave me a chance to learn in-depth about some of the most crucial elements of being a nonprofit leader. The Elevate Denver program was not only tremendously rewarding professionally, it also left me with an extensive network of ambitious new friends and colleagues to learn from and grow with moving forward. I would recommend Elevate to any young nonprofit professional looking to expand their horizons and move towards the next phase of their career.”
