elevateHER needs your support to continue to provide important programming to local young women that allow them to experience the outdoors, and gain valuable skills that enable them to become courageous and caring leaders.


"I started elevateHER this summer. At first I was a bit hesitant with starting this new program. I usually don't like starting new things. I thought that this was just going to be another program that I would end up quitting after it finished. But, after my first week with elevateHER, I realized it wasn't going to be another program I would quit. I felt like I was a part of a group. I usually never feel that way with a program. After the first month or less, I got more comfortable with everyone and started having more fun than before."

"elevateHER has changed me for the better. This program doesn't just teach girls to rock climb or hike or raft. It teaches us that we have power, it teaches us confidence, and most importantly it teaches us that we are all amazing through and through."


elevateHER's mission is to foster self-worth and grit in young women through mentoring, outdoor adventure, and holistic wellness programs.

Background Statement

Founded in 2017, elevateHER is a Chaffee County Colorado based youth serving nonprofit providing young womxn the opportunity to cultivate resilience, fortitude, and tenaciousness while developing physical and mental strength through a unique blend of outdoor adventure, mentoring and holistic wellness.

elevateHER seamlessly weaves critical out-of-school education such as mental wellness, healthy relationships, women's health, and resiliency into our outdoor adventure curriculum. Girls practice various mental health awareness techniques such as yoga, meditation, journaling, and mindfulness in conjunction with our physical health promoting curriculum. Every session involves a service project that allows the girls to give back to their community through volunteerism.

elevateHER addresses the opportunity gap that exists for young womxn in Chaffee County by identifying and removing barriers to participation in outdoor recreation; mentoring and mental health supports; leadership and workforce development opportunities; as well as substance use prevention curriculum.

We believe that every girl deserves the opportunity to feel a sense of connectedness to her community while developing skills to become a successful, resilient, adult.
