 about 

FOUNDED IN 2016 AT OAKLAND'S SPEED POWER STRENGTH (SPS) GYM, THE JAMES JENKINS LIFT US FOUNDATION USES STRENGTH SPORTS TO PREPARE YOUNG ATHLETES TO LEAD EXCEPTIONAL LIVES.

Our world-class facilities, coaches, and mentorship help our athletes become not just physically strong, but also mentally strong, confident, and ready to succeed inside and outside of the gym. We want them to be leaders long after they retire from competitive athletics because we believe that lifting a community means pulling others up along with you.

At Lift Us, our mission is to be a force for good in the world by lifting ALL of us:

Lift Us as individuals

Lift Us as a family

Lift Us as a community

Lift Us as a nation

It's not about lifting one of us or some of us. Our mission is to Lift Us all up together.

WE BELIEVE THAT NO MOTIVATED YOUNG ATHLETE SHOULD BE TURNED AWAY FROM REACHING THEIR POTENTIAL DUE TO FINANCIAL HARDSHIP,

so we offer extensive tuition assistance, which we consider to be an investment in our community and in our young athletes. If you are a prospective athlete in need of tuition assistance, please contact us here. And if you are a prospective donor interested in helping us to lift up even more members of our community, please find more information here.
