Youth LIFT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who's mission is to help homeless children succeed through education. We help homeless kids stay in school and complete their education by providing tutoring/mentoring services, help with school supplies and school fees, transportation coordination, school enrollment help, and other school related needs. We also provide activities for volunteers to bring the child they tutor on group social events where all of the matched tutors/kids are invited.

Homeless youth experience many obstacles to receiving an education, and without this extra help, they often drop out of school and continue on in a life of poverty and homelessness. These kids are more likely than their other classmates to perform below grade level, repeat grades, and drop out of school. They also have difficulty getting to school because of transportation issues and enrollment problems. As a tutor with Youth LIFT, you can help them with their educational needs so that they can do better in school and go on to graduate from high school.

We currently have several children who are waiting for volunteer tutors. Please contact us today! No experience in tutoring required. Volunteers have a variety of backgrounds, and we do provide training.

We help kids in elementary, middle, and high school with all types of study needs. Typically this is ages 6 through 18. Tutors are matched with one homeless child for a one-on-one relationship. They meet together once each week for 2 to 3 hours each week at a schedule that is convenient to both them and the child for ONE YEAR. You will need to pick up the child from the location where they live in St Petersburg to take them somewhere to study. Tutoring one of the children in our program does require a commitment for a period of ONE YEAR. This is an essential requirement for tutoring. If you cannot meet this commitment, there are other opportunities to help (just ask how!) For more information, email us to find out about our next Orientation and Training. If you are looking to really make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate, this is the opportunity for you! Must be at least 20 years old to tutor.
