LIFT Youth Center’s MISSION:

Creating opportunities for students to be Loved as they are, Inspired to be more, Found in community, and Trusted to make a difference.

LIFT will accomplish this by providing TWO free afterschool youth centers to fully serve 6th-12th grade Catoosa County students, where we will foster an environment of inclusion, positive self-worth, and self-discovery within our youth while facilitating inner growth to prepare them for future success.

“LIFT is working toward fulfilling a need I see in our community every day.  When a group of people come together to make a difference for the at-risk youth in our community, we should all ask what we can do to support that goal.  The best thing we can do right now is hop on board with this movement and show our youth that there is hope when they have so many reasons to believe there is none.  LIFT is stepping into that space and providing opportunities for our next generation to experience love, guidance and an opportunity to see that we do care.  This is an opportunity to make all the difference.”
