In part two, youth learn how to read and recite their poetry and are then guided and prepared for their "elevator pitch" experience. Taking the time necessary to help build up confidence and calm the nervous butterflies as they also learn to breathe and clear their minds.
In part three, Now-Poets utilize their newly sharpened poetic skill to charm and elevate guests in building elevators by coming up with quick words meant to inspire, move and enlighten, or otherwise "elevate" the minds of elevator riders as they "elevate" to their next destination.
