Building a Better Future

Elevate is a new pathway for youth in education, employment and empowerment, proving that by learning and improving digital skills, one can increase their chances of becoming employed or starting their own business or freelance career in Uganda.

The Problem

3 in 5 youth in Uganda are unemployed and lack skills


We believe it’s because of aspirations. We have failed in offering enough opportunities for our young people to truly dream, to believe and achieve. If you don’t have aspirations, dreams and the skill, you’re not going to believe in yourself. If you don’t have that community of people around you telling you that you can, you won’t achieve even the small things for you.

Our Solution


Elevate Creative Apprentice Program was started to reduce the number of disconnected youth in Improvised communities by lowering their barriers to entry to the STEM ( Science Technology Engineering and Maths) professions and increasing their relevant experience in the innovation economy.

Modeled as a creative service agency, our projects teach design thinking, art, multimedia, tech and communication skills to give young people the technical and leadership tools they need to compete in the innovation economy and to be leaders in their community. era92 offers studios and mentorship in 3D design, printmaking, painting, photography, coding, graphic design, film and animation.
