  • Programs

  • Student Leadership Information For Tomorrow, (LIFT), is a program of the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce.  The program offers twenty-six rising sophomores and juniors who reside in Randolph County the opportunity to learn more about the area and gain valuable leadership skills.

    LIFT is an exciting and unique opportunity for those selected.  It is the goal of LIFT to produce leaders who are interested in their community both now and in the future.

    LIFT is a highly structured seven-month program in which a wide variety of resources, issues, and services will be examined.  Participants will interact with business and community leaders and participate in special tours that will offer a “behind the scenes” look into local situations and decisions.  Prominent individuals from the public and private sector give generously of their time, talent and knowledge to serve as speakers or panelists for these sessions.

    LIFT participants will be challenged to increase their knowledge and to become actively involved in problem solving through dialogue with existing leaders in the community.  The experiences in this program will have immediate, positive effects on the participants, their school, and community.
