As a non-profit organization dedicated to building long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth, it has received several public recognitions, including UpLift student winners of the Metropolitan Mayor's and Commissioners' Youth Award as well as the El Pomar Youth Human Service of the Year Award in 2001. There are thousands of activity-based programs for inner city youth which include Boys & Girls Clubs, athletic teams, after school programs and many local and federally funded dropout prevention initiatives.
