Project Uplift is an agency whose main goal is to help children develop constructive, happy lives so that the delinquency rate in our county will decrease.
Project Uplift is governed by the Lee County Youth Development Center's board of directors, administrator of a local ad valorem tax, our primary funding source. Additional major support comes from the Cities of Opelika and Auburn, the Lee County United Way, and several voluntary contributions. The Department of Psychology, in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University, provides in-kind services and office space to the volunteer program through the Psychological Services Center.
Project Uplift offers volunteer services to Lee County children at no cost to their families. Since our opening in July 1973, more than 5500 volunteers and children have participated in our program (presently we have about 525 people in the program). Only a small percentage of the children have entered the juvenile court system during the time that they were involved with the program.
