Lift Project

In September 2022, Smola Consulting launched The Lift Project with 60+ school districts and 8 additional Greater Rochester organizations. The program included employees, their families, and members of their communities. This initiative was our largest community program to date with over 5,000 total participants. 

The program is now featured in professional development programs for teachers, taught in high school health & PE classes, and has been adopted as the premier well-being program for employees at several upstate NY organizations.

The Lift Project Challenge is a 7-week internationally recognized well-being adventure, created by award-winning lifestyle medicine physician Dr. Darren Morton, that combines research from the fields of positive psychology, neuroscience, and lifestyle medicine.
