Registration open for our Spring Session!
LiftUP supports teens and young adults in Palm Beach County who are transitioning out of the foster care system and/or are living with someone other than their birth parents (ages 18-25). The entire program is dedicated to supporting the development of a successful adult who has self-esteem, self-regulation, and self-awareness.
The LiftUP program’s new culinary initiative, which prepares participants for a job in the Food Service &/or Hospitality industry, is an accelerated 6 week course and is limited to 10 young adults.
