COMMUNITY

As a community partner, our work goes beyond the office and job site. We work hard to ensure projects not only align with our organizational mission, but with our greater mission of connecting with people and leaving a lasting impact on our community.

The real passion in our work comes from taking relationships with our clients, subcontractors, and the community to new heights…and that doesn’t just happen within our office walls. One of the ways we accomplish this is through the support of local organizations, like Mirror Image Leadership Academy, where Elevated's President and CEO, Michael Beard, serves as the organization's Vice-Chair.

Mirror Image Leadership Academy (MILA) is a 3-year leadership development experience for incoming 7th graders, primarily targeting, but not limited to, African American males in Alachua County, FL. Their true mission is to help young men discover for themselves the leader that lies within.

With more than 1,800 nonprofits in Alachua County, there are PLENTY of wonderful local causes to support and we encourage you to get involved. If you'd like to learn more about Mirror Image, or if you're interested in supporting their mission, click here.
