According to a former ELEVATE participant, the program experience "saved our marriage." Another participant said they "learned how to control my emotions and value my partner as well as myself. I'm going to use what I learned in this class to keep my relationship going and improving." Each 90-minute session will engage couples in fun activities to learn skills to manage stress better, strengthen their connection with each other, deal with differences in healthy ways, and elevate their relationships' quality. In addition to these skills, couples can also earn up to $350 in e-gift cards for attending the series. It "pays" to ELEVATE your relationship!
