PROJECT L.I.F.T. believes that knowledge and diversity benefit everyone. The lack of opportunities, role models, information, and financial support prevents adolescent youth from disadvantage backgrounds from becoming leaders in the areas of medicine, law, science, education, engineering, and business. Project L.I.F.T. was founded to help the youth contribute their voices and talents to issues that affect all communities. The overall goal of Project L.I.F.T. is to invest in our youth early and long term. It is only through this critical involvement that we will be able to address some of the most pressing issues of our communities.
