Lift is a non-profit after school program that focuses on literacy improvement, whole child development, and spiritual nurture.

 

Our Focus

Literacy Improvement

Lift students attend based on a recommendation from Eastbrook South Elementary School teachers. Our mission is to give these students a ‘lift’ in their reading proficiency through intentional skill instruction, supported reading in highly engaging text, and a modeled love for reading.

Whole Child Development

 

Every part of the Lift day is designed to provide opportunities for each student to be healthy, engaged, supported, and challenged as they grow. This is accomplished through literature, play, healthy snack choices, music, games, art, enrichment, and positive relationships

 

 

Spiritual Nurture

Lift desires that each child will know God and His great love for them. Daily music is chosen to teach about God’s character in an engaging way. Lift students are connected in an age appropriate manner to scripture and prayer throughout each Lift session.

 

Our Model

Lift serves over thirty 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders from Eastbrook South Elementary School. Each child in Lift receives approximately 91 days (3 days per week) of 2.5-hours intentional programming which includes literacy instruction, music, structured play, healthy snacks, enrichment activities, spiritual nurture, and character development.

 

Our Impact

 

 

120+

Since we opened in 2014 we’ve had the opportunity to impact the lives of over 100 students.

 

80%

In 2018-19, greater than 80% of Lift students showed growth in reading as measured by the NWEA (a state-aligned, computerized adaptive test given 3x per year in most Indiana schools.)

 

Lifelong

In addition to quantitative improvement in reading aptitude, many students showed gains in qualitative areas such as better behavior at school, increased respect and cooperation at home, and increased participation in positive faith-based activities.
