Youth Program

*coming soon

Lift Leadership Programs are designed to equip youth with skills, philosophies, and techniques to become effective and excellent leaders and role models in their community and beyond.

Here at our Lift Leadership Institute, we believe all students have the capacity to become authentic leaders and rise to the challenges the emerging generation face. A great place to start to develop these critical leadership skills is within middle and high school students. Our program aims to help teens learn to lead, excel academically, and prepare them for life beyond middle and high school. Certified teachers deliver a curriculum that is relevant, simple to teach, cool to learn, and offers EVERY kid the choice to practice leadership. Everyone can be a leader regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. Leaders are developed through education and experience. Building character is a personal choice. Leaders use a common and shared language. Leadership takes practice.Leaders learn and grow through failure.
