ABOUT US

We are Leelanau County's only free after-school program for 6th through 12th graders.

Leelanau Investing For Teens (LIFT) is a teen center based in Suttons Bay, MI dedicated to empowering local youth to discover their strengths by investing in their evolution, autonomy, and character. 

Our afterschool programming takes place Mondays through Fridays for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Suttons Bay, Northport, and Glen Lake Schools and we partner with area high schools to support 9th through 12th graders socially and emotionally.

LIFT's no-cost programming for Leelanau County teens continues all summer long! Click below for more information on our summertime activities for incoming 6th through 12th graders.

"LIFT has shown me to reach out to people when I am interested in something or have a question because it is likely that someone in our community is knowledgeable about it, or has the answer."
