Uplift teen Community Support


As you consider Uplfit Teens for your high schooler next year, please review the ways our community of parents will be asked to help support the continued presence of this space for our Uplift community.  It is our prayer that by creating ways for the parents to step in and help support this space, that you will enjoy seeing what the Lord has been building during this time, and catch our vision of sustainability for all that is taking place! 


Parent Support Requirements: On-Campus

  • 1 full day per semester (15 weeks per semester) of on-campus adult support. On-campus support can be broken into two half days (8:30-12:30/12:00-4) if needed. 

  • Although not a requirement, we would love for the events below to happen for our teens! If you are interested in being a support in any way to a lead in the events listed below, please reach out.  We would love the support to make these happen! 


Parent Support Requirement: Off-Campus Opportunities

Should the on-campus support not be an option for your family, we have three off-campus opportunites to fulfill your support requirements . Please reach out for a conversation on the below roles:

  1. Volunteer Coordinator: Manages the volunteer calendar and communicates to the parents and the HSI leads when needed. 
  2. Fundraiser Coordinator: Manages a drip fundraiser for the year.
  3. Event Coordinator: Ask for more info on what is already in place!

    • High School Events:

      • Fall Party (October)

      • Spring Party (February)

      • End of year (April)

      • Graduation

 Leads/Coordinator Volunteer Position Opportunities 

The sustainability of Uplift teens is dependent on the following positions being filled, and those who consider taking on one of these roles would be eligible to apply for a scholarship to help with class costs.  

Scholarships are made possible through the efforts of fundraisers supported by our community throughout the year.  If you are unable to consider one of these positions throughout the year, a great way to support this day is being involved in the fundraisers throughout the year to help support scholarship opportunities for families within our community!
