Welcome To Lift Up KC Youth organization


What is Lift Up Kc youth Organization?

Lift Up KC Youth Organization is here to develop the youth of the Kansas City Metro area.  We are here to be a vessel to launch Kansas City area high school students into adulthood with a proper foundation in place.  We offer services to help youth achieve their goals of obtaining a higher education though tutoring, ACT/SAT Prep and Financial Assistance to ensure youth that are part of our program can take these required exams and score well.   We Also encourage our youth to be great citizens though various community outreach services such as peer-tutoring, homeless outreach and many other community outreach services. Our Fall and Summer youth basketball program provides teaching, training and development opportunities to youth in the Kansas City area, with their participation in our program they can receive opportunities to further their academic career and potentially basketball career as they move into adulthood.

How do we serve our Community?

Educational Programs If youth are struggling with the ACT/SAT or would like to start to prep to take the test we will provide preparation and upon successful completion of the prep activities offer to help financially with the cost of the test for students as needed.

Community Outreach A great way for our youth to give back to the community while earning community service hours.  This will allow the completion of college application requirements

Personal Development Our Program allows youth to communicate their goals and the vision for their life and allow us to help guide them in the right direction.

Athletic Opportunity For students athletes demonstrating a desire to play basketball at the next level we prepare them with those skills as well.  NDaGym is our basketball program that excels in teaching and mentoring youth looking to take the next step in their basketball careers.

Roosevelt Cooper Scholorship 

In the summer of 2017 we Lost one of our Family members Roosevelt Cooper was tragically killed just days before heading off to College.  We saw this as an oppertunity to provide underprivileged youth with an opportunity to earn a Scholarship that will help with their transition from High School to college.  We will award a number of scholarships each year to students that have performed in the classroom and in the community in honor of Roosevelt Cooper.
