Our Programs

To inspire  growth, we offer a number of activities for our young men and women to engage in. Differentiated academic instruction and recreational activity and practice are at the center of our program. Mentors will assure that children are able to self-reflect, set meaningful goals, and learn to become self-sufficient throughout the year and throughout their lives.

Our Impact

Thanks to you, last year we were able to provide services to 600 children through our mentoring programs, motivational school visits, L.I.F.T As We Climb summer camp, college tours, and our Boot Camp To Success. We were also able to provide provide hot meals, coats, and toys to over 200 families on Christmas day.  On behalf of them, thank you.  

We recently helped Zamari, a 5th grader who came into L.I.F.T. last year, struggling in school and at home. After a year in our mentoring program his grades and behavior have improved tremendously. He even has an award to prove it. Every day, your support makes stories like this one possible.

I am amazed at the endless dedication and patience you show the young men here at George Washington Carver and I as their teacher really appreciate it.
