LIFT (Lifting and Impacting Futures Today) is a college and career readiness conference for students of all ages and their families. Whether your child becomes a first-generation college student, joins the military, or lands a job, LIFT can help prepare them for what comes after high school graduation. The free conference offers workshops, introduces students to a variety of careers, and explains financial aid as you interact with career professionals and college enrollment staff. High school seniors can also potentially win a scholarship!
