Program Description

UpLift employs a holistic approach to meet each student�???�??�?�¢??s needs. This means full-time, salaried teacher-mentors, year-round programming, cross-age mentoring, and a long-term relational approach in five areas: In-School, After-School, Adventure, Post-Secondary, and Advanced Leadership.

    • We believe that EVERY CHILD is of great worth and has the desire and potential to succeed.
    • We believe that LONG-TERM, 24/7 RELATIONSHIPS with caring adults have proven positive outcomes in the lives of our urban youth.
    • We believe that a HOLISTIC approach is essential for a strong and healthy future for our youth.
    • We believe that FULL-TIME, SALARIED TEACHER-MENTORS WHO COME FROM SIMILAR BACKGROUNDS as the students can have a positive influence and make all the difference.
    • We believe that the SERVANT LEADERSHIP, creating a culture of selflessness and service, is the foundation of great leadership.
    • We believe in the intrinsic DIGNITY of every person and act accordingly.
    • We believe that COLLABORATION yields the best long-term results, acknowledging that the complex work in our urban centers cannot be done single-handedly.
