exalt catalyzes in our students a transformation in thinking, which is a necessary precursor to substantive and long term behavior change.

While we measure hard outcomes including criminal justice avoidance and progression in school, it is difficult to quantify many of the internal shifts that must happen along a student’s “stages of change.” However, we believe that students’ increased comprehension and application of what we call the “four core skills” play a significant role in their behavior change.

I have found exalt to be a wonderful organization, and being in exalt has opened my eyes to new things in life. Now I look at things differently, and now I see the importance of my school work and regular activities.
