LIFT Expansion Capital Campaign Summary

Help expand 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.
