CONNECT. EDUCATE. INSPIRE.
Level Up is on a mission to connect, educate, and inspire women through a curated platform of online and offline classes and events. We do this because we know when women thrive, everyone in their community thrives. We believe in the power of knowledge and confidence to spark change and spread joy. We want to bridge and nurture communities, fill in gaps to get to that "next step", and encourage women to choose to create something beautiful in their lives.
A LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER
Hi there! I’m so glad you are here!
In 2016, I began hosting in-person classes at our local coworking space. I had no intention of turning these events into a business, but it only took a few classes for me to realize we had something pretty special.
Over the last three years, we’ve had the privilege of witnessing people share their passion, connect in meaningful ways, and explore their own sense of curiosity. But it doesn't end there. This sense of accomplishment, this happiness, it spreads like wildfire and rushes into every other aspect of our lives. Our students are having a blast learning new things and being together, but we're the lucky ones who get to be involved in this movement, the community they bring and the inspiration that flourishes in them.
As we continue our journey into new communities, our hope is that we can continue nourishing these relationships, highlighting our local makers, creatives and businesses and spread the joy.
We are based in Louisville, KY, with new markets emerging all over the US to help everyone Level Up! Thanks again for taking the time to look into Level Up. We are excited to see you in class soon!
With love and appreciation always,
Natalia, Founder & Chief of Happiness
It is not enough to merely say that we support womxn, to try to be good people in our personal lives, and just go on about our day.
Last summer we made a commitment to examining ways we can be better allies to the Black community, educating ourselves, asking the tough questions, listening even when it's difficult but more importantly taking bold action.
For this reason, we've decided to make our action plan for Equity and Inclusion visible to anyone in the community in the spirit of transparency and accountability. There is also an option to use as a template if you are not sure where to start within your own organization.
