LIFT Health Youth look to ameliorate the health of their physical environment by taking pride in its appearance. Their efforts includes cleaning their neighborhood park (Robles Park) and Robles Park Village of unnecessary quantities of trash and with the stipends they are paid they vow to not buy candies, sodas or potato chips. They take pride in cleaning and advocating to others in their community to "not litter!"
Through character development, enrichment and food cultivation and preparation, our youth gain personal development and valuable life skills. Our experienced resources include credentialed professional counselors, psychologists, health professionals, nutritionist and life coaches. All supporters help our youth to develop a strong sense of self, internal fortification and a true commitment to service.
