LIFT (Leading Individuals and Families to Transformation) Champaign is the result of an innovative partnership between the Champaign Unit 4 School District and the City of Champaign, with Unit 4 serving as the lead entity. LIFT focuses on African American youth in grades K-12, as well as their families, who are experiencing significant challenges academically and personally. The initiative provides trauma-informed care through intensive wraparound support and connections to both school-based and community resources.
LIFT is designed to ensure students and families can succeed and thrive despite difficult circumstances or challenges in their scholastic or personal lives.
