About Us

LIFT was founded in 1961 by the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Greater Dallas Section in response to its concern over the illiteracy rate among adults in north Texas.  The goal was to create and support an organization that would offer easily accessible classes so that functionally illiterate adults could learn to read and write in English. To date more than 50,000 low-literate adults have accomplished their literacy goals through LIFT programs.

Today, LIFT offers adult literacy programs for very low-literate adults; preparation for the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE); and English as a Second Language (ESL). Workforce skill development activities are included in all programs. Any adult 18-years-old or older may enroll in LIFT classes.
