Youth Development

The Lift offers job and life skills training for youth from Saint Paul’s East Side neighborhood. Through evening programs designed to address critical thinking and emotional wellness—from team building and problem solving to self awareness and conflict resolution—students in grades one through twelve develop a toolbox of skills that will empower them to become healthy, productive, and caring adults.

The Lift also runs a job skills program at The Plaza Theater, where young adults, many of whom are in their first ever job, learn to become star employees by taking initiative and practicing personal responsibility—all in a safe, friendly environment.

"We just started attending last summer and we love it! This past weekend the music was so beautiful, I felt the Holy Spirit there and wept the entire time. And then the message on relationships spoke right to my own struggles. God is here."
