Student Img LIFTT is a FREE year long program available to New York City high school students who are entering their Junior year. LIFTT seeks to work with the student who has yet to realize their full potential. The student who isn’t currently at the head of the class, but has the drive and desire to improve their lives and the world around them, is an ideal candidate for LIFTT.

In addition, at the conclusion of the year students who have successfully completed all program elements will receive the following:
  • Exposure to unique work, projects and experiences
  • A personal statement / college essay for use in the following year’s college applications
  • A LIFTT resources and references binder
  • College guidebooks
  • A Certificate of Completion
  • A personal recommendation from the Intrepid Program Manager (for use in their college application) and
  • A portfolio visually documenting their LIFTT program (also valuable for use in the college application process)
To inquire about the LIFTT program, please contact schoolprograms@intrepidmuseum.org.
The LIFTT program is generously supported by grants from The Pinkerton Foundation and The ADP Foundation
