Our Programs

College Path Mentorship

The program offers quality, well-rounded educational experiences by equipping mentees with not only academic but also social skills needed for college success. Strong academic support is offered to high school students by their college mentors who assist them weekly with essay writing, resume building, SAT/ACT test preparation, etc.

Summer Math Camps

The summer math camp offered by UPLIFT aims to assist students in strengthening their mathematical foundations, overcoming summer learning loss, and ultimately maximizing their high school academic success. Additionally, we want to narrow achievement gaps and develop students’ intellectual capacity to get ahead for the next school year.

STEAM Classes

UPLIFTS’s STEAM classes aim to heighten K-8 students’ interest and enhance their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Our goal is to achieve this mission by igniting curiosity in students and establishing a life-long love for STEAM through our expertly designed, creative & fun curriculum.
