WHAT IS L.I.F.T & L.I.F.T ALLIANCE?
L.I.F.T (Leadership Institute for Teens) is a curriculum-based program that focuses on leadership, team-building, character education and volunteerism for future academic endeavors. Over the course of the academic school year, our participants will engage in peer-to-peer interaction and exercises, internship/job shadowing opportunities, and collegiate preparation. Throughout the course of their yearly commitment, each participant is required to take part in monthly community service projects.
L.I.F.T. aims for each girl to gain a holistic point of view of post high school education.
We meet once every other week from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at one of our Girls Inc. sites in Portsmouth or Hampton, VA.
