Youth Development

The Lift is a community organization dedicated to two goals. First, to support youth and their families in Saint Paul through job and life skills training. Second, to build restorative relationships between people from diverse backgrounds.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, The Lift is delivering groceries and supplies to Saint Paul families, and partnering with Close to My Heart and Woodland Hills to provide childcare and help with distance learning to elementary youth while their parents are at work.

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.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
