L.I.F.T. As We Climb, Inc.

Our Mission

Right in your neighborhood, L.I.F.T as we Climb is a community based 501c3 non-profit organization that seeks to empower and equip young men and women with the necessary tools for success. Our organization is a home away from home which gives youth the opportunity to strengthen social, academic, and athletic ability.

It is our mission to provide children with the opportunity to unleash their full potential in a meaningful capacity. We strive to support our young men and women as they mature and develop into the leaders of our community. To inspire their growth, we offer a number of activities in which students will benefit from differentiated academic and recreational instruction and practice. Mentors will assure that children are able to self-reflect, set meaningful goals, and learn to become self-sufficient.


“I continue to believe that if children are given the necessary tools to succeed, they will succeed beyond their wildest dreams!”

— David Vitter, Former U.S. Senator

Our services are geared toward, but not limited to, families with lower annual income that desires the preeminent education and support provided for their youth. Our services are greater than or equal to the top qualifying programs but at a lesser cost.

L.I.F.T as We Climb is an academic enrichment and recreational organization for youth living in inner cities. Our motto "L.I.F.T as we climb" encompasses the concept of authentic brotherhood and sisterhood. We believe that as we reach new heights, we must make a conscious effort to also lift and encourage those in our communities to do the same.
