Lift for Life Gym was started as an alternative outlet for youth in 1988. LfL has training in weightlifting, basketball, yoga, and cross-fit. In addition to producing medal-winning athletes, Lift for Lift Gym has expanded to address so many needs of their youth. They offer mentorship, over 10,000 free meals annually along with nutrition classes, and extensive tutoring.
YourWords STL first held pilot sessions at Lift for Life in the summer of 2016. We were so honored to be invited back to offer a full semester of programming to young women 9-18 years of age which started in Jan 2017, led by Patsy Zettler, and now local educator and artist, Donna Patton. We are thrilled to be working with these enthusiastic young writers!
