Project Lift After-School Programs

After-School Prevention Program For Youth

Project Lift is a free prevention program that operates within the Saratoga Springs City School District elementary and middle schools. The program utilizes a unique approach to enhance children’s social and emotional competencies, improves decision making skills and offers lessons on the prevention of drug, tobacco, alcohol, violence and bullying.

The children are provided with opportunities to learn and grow in a safe environment. We empower the participants to have conversations that widen their scope of the world and provide families with case management services. We host opportunities throughout the school year for our “Lifters” to showcase what they are learning in Lift by inviting their families in to celebrate their many accomplishments. Families also benefit from the other services of the Center as well such as holiday assistance, school supplies, food, referrals to additional services, clothing, summer camp, etc.

The same philosophy applies to Project Lift as to Franklin Community Center – we strive to meet the needs as they exist in the moment.
