PILLARS OF SUCCESS

Pillars of Success - Social Skills Icon

SOCIAL SKILLS

Building relationships is a crucial part of life and can sometimes be a challenge. In Semester 1, LiftUp incorporates the book “Success for Teens: Real Teens Talk About Using The Slight Edge” to help young people in the program learn good social habits. These habits will help build social growth as well as give ideas on how to promote good self-evaluation, reflection, and self-improvement in everyday life.

Pillars of Success - leadership & Professionalism Icon

LEADERSHIP & PROFESSIONALISM

We want to help young adults become young professionals and leaders.  Through assigned mentors and two semesters of LiftUp, students will learn how to present themselves in the business world and how to be viable candidates to potential employers. The program incorporates the importance of first impressions, resume building, presentation skills, leadership, and others.

LIFE SKILLS

Everyday life can be hectic with many conflicting responsibilities. It is important that students not only learn the different skills needed, but also how to put them into practice in everyday living.  Topics such as Attitude is Everything, Habits Are Powerful, and Living Healthy and Well, introduce many concepts not taught in a typical school setting.

Pillars of Success - Financial Independence Icon

FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE

Money makes the world go around and the adults committed to LiftUp are keenly aware of it. In this day and age, earning money is not good enough, students have to be good stewards of what they earn. Through the LiftUp program, students will learn the concepts of spend, save and share.   It is important to be fully prepared for the financial world and the responsibility that goes along with it. LiftUp teaches the importance of budgeting, getting and staying out of debt, building credit, investing, etc. This will give students the ability to thrive in the financial market instead of just staying afloat.
