Lifers have several different opportunities for involvement.  We have social activities that are open to the entire club, field trips that are limited by transportation requirements, and community service projects.   These monthly activities are designed to provide a place for students to enjoy the company of like-minded students in a safe, fun, drug-free environment.

The team is restricted to 12 students who are enrolled 7th and 8th grades in pre-algebra or higher who are nominated by the Math department.
