"Integrity plus character...that is the goal of true education." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

​​LIFT is a didactic program

designed to provide

exploration of personal

attitudes and attributes

that are crucial to

successful life management,

and an expression

of those processes

through various art forms. 


I RISE utilizes a newfangled approach to engage the untapped power in youth through a combination of service learning and career-exploration programming.


I RISE is the conscious commitment of youth to become educated about the needs of marginalized communities and advocates for improvement.


Collaboration with local experts allows for exploration into areas most beneficial to project completion. 



Youth participants of high-quality community-based service-learning are likely to benefit in a number of ways:

  • Increased sense of self-efficacy
  • Ability to impact real social challenges, problems, and needs. 
  • Higher academic achievement and interest in furthering their education.
  • Enhanced problem-solving skills, ability to work in teams, and planning abilities. 
  • Enhanced civic engagement attitudes, skills and behaviors.

Our greatest appreciation to the volunteers from Forward Church Movement for being the first to help us push toward our goals. 


"I believe growth occurs wherever the roots are firmly planted."  -Kelly A. Jackson
