Lift & Shift Foundation
In New Directions
Our Passion Is A Gateway To Science & TechThe Lift & Shift Foundation advocates for veteran inclusion in science & technology through programs that educate & build confidence. We reduce the invisible barriers to entry & everyone's invited.
When It Comes To Career Change,
Job Placement Is Only One Factor In A Holistic Approach.
Both physicists & psychologists study the stress that strains our connections. Military careers are built on strong connections & a framework of unity & support. That includes military families, they serve too.
After joining the military, not everyone has a career path to a corporate office. Injuries, visible & invisible, require non-traditional solutions. We know hobbies & passion are 2 key ingredients in a successful entrepreneur.
After military service, veterans lose financial stability & an identity. And imposter syndrome can add insecurity to an already stressful career change. Add family to the mix & the need for support grows even more.
How Do We Educate & Build Confidence?
Battle of the Bots
Sprinkle some robots with a dash of retro video games, and you've got Battle of the Bots. It's a fun introduction to the world of robots and coding, with no degree or prerequisites. That means no experience necessary. Perfect for a family fun day.
Circuits, software, & people make Battle Of The Bots successful. The Design Team is where veterans & volunteers can tinker with their passion ‐ whether it's a hobby or career. The team has a simple mandate: create success, solve problems by crafting solutions, & have fun. See if your hobby fits the program.
Lift & Shift Learning Series
Our Learning Series might look like a mixed bag of resources. But STEM fields ‐ Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, And Art ‐ include everything from graphic design to culinary science. This is where we connect veterans with support from equally diverse sponsors.
