Lift Eastbrook Afterschool is a nonprofit afterschool program focusing on literacy improvement, whole child development and spiritual nurture.

Lift is fortunate to have a healthy partnership with Eastbrook South Elementary. Administration, teachers and staff embrace the support and growth that Lift provides for their students as we strive to make a difference in the lives of the students who attend.

We believe that literacy is a key component to a strong and thriving community. Every child deserves the gift of reading, but some children need extra layers of support to unwrap that gift. Lift provides those needed reinforcements to help build literacy in our students.

At least 20 percent of residents in Grant County are functionally illiterate, according to research by Jan Lankenau, a member of the Grant County Literacy Council. Research shows that when literacy rates decrease, the negative effects on the community are significant. Lift exists to increase literacy rates and positively impact our community by equipping students for life!
