The LIFT2 program, now in its 11th year, places committed teachers into paid externships in companies in STEM fields so they can experience first-hand what careers might look like for their students. Through their job experiences, and a companion project-based learning course, these teachers develop the skills and insights to make their teaching come alive to inspire their students. Over the course of a year, each teacher in the LIFT2 program might influence 100 to 400 students, and over a career they may touch the lives of 5,000 to 10,000 future employees.
