*Water Avenue Coffee Co. is not an affiliated entity with Elevate Oregon. We are an independent effort donating proceeds.
Elevate Oregon is an empowering, efficient, year-round mentoring program centered on raising graduation rates and post-secondary enrollment, while also striving to create “generational firsts”, offering students the tools they need to become future leaders in our region.
Their wrap-around approach is aligned with school district goals for learning, student retention, and equity. Their accredited, age/grade appropriate curriculum focuses on engaging young people in seven character qualities and six life-skills that form the foundation for accomplishment. Their TMs involve students in their own success by developing strategies and supports for academic achievement, personal responsibility, and building the resilience needed to meet challenges head-on.
At Water Avenue Coffee Co., we stand with those who are working to dismantle the social and political injustices that are faced by the black community everyday. We wouldn’t be staying true to our core values if we aren’t willing to do the work and continue to educate ourselves and our community on what we can do to help and better each other. We are thinking critically about what more we can do—as a company and as individuals—to support in this critical moment. We promise to continue to listen and use our platform as a way of supporting and standing by the BIPOC community. We hope you know this is just the beginning in our effort to continue to educate ourselves to do better each day.
This blend contains coffee from the Limmu Kossa Estate in Ethiopia and Finca Ayutepeque in El Salvador.
