​Every Valley Leadership Academy


The Left Out

We are Every Valley

Leadership Academy

Our mission is to lift up Chattanooga's overlooked youth with a message of hope and an experience of God's glory.

Every Valley enfranchises those marginalized youths through leadership development, giving them greater access to social connections and community resources. We mentor them, connecting them and their families with concrete opportunities to experience God’s glory in their relationships, in their education, in their employment, and in the life of our community.


"Every valley shall be lifted up,
 and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Are Lifted Up

The world is taking notice of Chattanooga’s natural beauty, its downtown renaissance, and its economic opportunities. Yet barriers remain which prevent youth in some of our  communities from connecting with those resources and opportunities. The obstacles they face can seem overwhelming.
