At LIFT2Enrich, everything is done for the benefit of our children. We provide creative writing and literacy enrichment programs because we know strong writing skills are beneficial in every aspect of life. Today’s kids have more negative feedback than ever, thanks to social media and its constant presence. However, we believe writing can provide a positive outlet to our already stressed and over-anxious kids. Writing is something they can do in their own time and on their own terms. Just 15 minutes of writing a day can make a remarkable impact on students’ mental wellbeing. We want to elevate our kids’ writing, but it is equally important for students to express themselves and make their voices heard.
We place a premium on mentorship. We are not just trying to improve grades or competency. We are trying to create healthier, happier, more empowered human beings. We want to instill skills that will serve our kids from now on, not just right now. By lifting up communities and students who have traditionally been neglected, we are eradicating educational inequity. It’s a tall order, but we believe we are up to the task. To reach all of our goals, we’ll need some help. We have the grit and the drive, but we need partners to help us reach more kids. Our 2021 goals are to:
- Expand our board to include advisors with expertise in IT, public relations, and fundraising.
- Partner with businesses geared toward education equality.
- Secure financial resources we need to be most effective.
- Acquire professionals to help us create and evaluate our programs.
If any of this resonates with you, please connect with us to see how you can get involved. From monetary donations to volunteerism, every helping hand counts. We are excited and ready to see our programs reach more kids, so we can work toward a brighter, more just future – the future they deserve.
